Re: Can connect 4-6 ohms speakers?

You can. But don't push volume control to max. 4 ohm draws more current than 8 ohm speakers, so at high volumes it may damage the Amp.

Re: Can connect 4-6 ohms speakers?

Which amp do you have?6 ohm is ok,but make sure it can drive 4ohm speakers to prevent clipping.

Re: Can connect 4-6 ohms speakers?

If minimum is 8 ohms and you use a 4 ohm speaker the amp will run very hot and it may get damaged in the long run. 6 ohms will also pose a problem, however it is still a easier load than a 8 ohm load

Re: Can connect 4-6 ohms speakers?

I ran 4 ohm speakers recently in Mumbai meet with Yamaha 667.Though I could select only 6 ohm in yamaha,I pushed amp to run,it did,but was little more Hot than usual.
It is always safe to use 8 OR 6 ohm speakers.You never know amp can trip if push harder.
