    right, i know very little about amps and whatnot, so what's this little ohm word mean, really? how does it affect my stuff?
  2. An ohm is a unit of measurement that measures electrical resistance in a circuit, called its "impedence".

    The less impedence a cabinet has, the more current your amp will deliver into it.

    Basically, you should find a speaker cabinet that matches whatever impedence your amp has been designed to optimally run at.

    let us not forget the memorable rhyme:
    twinkle twinkle little star V=IxR.
    voltage equals current times impeadance

    check out this site

    it explains this concept rather well.
