I hope I worded that right and in a way thats understandable.


I was thinking it was something like that. So, correct me if I am wrong, if the resistance is lower the speakers will draw more power from the head?

That I can understand but I still ask, why if there are two 8ohms in line does the resistance drop to 4ohms? Should it not be 16?
