What are the implications if ...


Recommended Posts

Certain death would result...

I think it would take a well tuned speaker and mess it up.

I have a 15" 3-way system, replaced the woofers, doesn't sound as good. The TS parameters were about the same!


Receiver: Sony STR-DE675

CD player: Sony CDP-CX300

Turntable: Technics SL-J3 with Audio-Technica TR485U

Speakers: JBL HLS-610

Subwoofer: JBL 4648A-8

Sub amp: Parts Express 180 watt

Center/surrounds: Teac 3-way bookshelfs

Yes, it sucks, but better to come. KLIPSCH soon! My computer is better than my stereo!

because the 4 ohm woofer was defective and are harder (impossible?)to come by in the general marketplace.

Since I assume the woofer would be 'limited' by a low pass filter, moving the crossover point down an octave would leave an octave at the top end of the woofer's range, and the bottom of midrange somewhat deficient... correct???

Since we are talking impedance and not resistance (other than Re=3.8(4 ohm) and Re=5.75(8 ohm) is also different), is there anything that can easily be done to help the situation?
