    The above is in the Newbie FAQ that can get to by clicking the "FAQ" link at the top of the page.

    The link in this post should take you to the "What's an ohm?" question.

    EDIT: Oh yeah, and do a search of the Amps forum. If you can find Joris' Amp FAQ, it will answer anything you wanted to know about amps.

    An ohm is a measure of resistance.

    "The practical meter-kilogram-second unit of electric resistance equal to the resistance of a circuit in which a potential difference of one volt produces a current of one ampere."

    Makes sense now, eh?

    ;)

    It sounds like a mouthful but that's the kind of thing I hear all day at school. :eek:


    Ohms are a pretty simple concept that most people will never need to know beyond "Two 8 ohm cabs equals one 4 ohm load".
