    I think my last message was a bit too jam-packed with information...

    Basically, I want to know if high impedance or low impedance in the load
    causes a tranny to overheat. I would assume it would be low impedance,
    because that would induce high amperage, letting current flow almost
    unrestricted between the output leads. But my experience with my own
    transformer doesn't seem to reflect this... my transformer is overheating
    when carrying a load that has an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas it didn't used
    to overheat with a load that had an impedance of 6.25 ohms.

    I need a response ASAP, it's kind of important.
