    Novice question...

    What would happen to a reciever that is rated for 8 ohm speakers if you connect 4 ohm speakers to it? Is it a bad thing?

    Thanks...

    a reflected signal ?

  3. The worst-case would be that the amplifier burnt out. Next-worse: a
    protection circuit kicked in and turned the sound off. Probably it
    would function normally, maybe even play a little louder if there was
    current to spare in the main amplifier. If the amp. was designed to a
    price, maybe it would run out of power and give weak or distorted
    sound.

    So stick to the correct ohms for the reciever...

    Thanks for the input.

    shouldnt two 4 ohm speakers in series give an 8 ohm load?
