    What is the advantage of 64 ohm speakers over the more traditional
    8 ohm speakers. Do we need higher voltages to operate them, as
    power = V^2/R

  3. They need higher voltage but lower current for a given power output.
    If you want to drive a speaker from an opamp output, a 64 ohm speaker
    is a much better match to the available voltage and current than an 8
    ohm one.

    Do you mean some sort of power opamp. Normal opamps give about
    10mA, which will not be enough even for a minature 64ohm speaker, I
    believe.
     
  5. If you hold it to your ear, (as in a cell phone) you might be
    surprised at how loud it is. It won't replace your stereo.
