Ohm load on amplifier

Recommended Posts

If I connect (2) of the 15” drivers “parallel”(KPT 415) to one pair of speaker outlets on the amp and the other (2) set of 15” drivers to the other pair of outlets on the amp. Is this a 4 Ohm load on the amp ?

What's the listed impedance of the 15" drivers; that's what we need to know.


Connecting 2- 8 ohm  15" drivers IN PARALLEL to one speaker output will equal 4 ohms.


If the listed impedance of each of the pair of 15" drivers is lower than 8 ohms, the resistance of that channel will

be lower than 4 ohms.

Thank you for the response Peter. 

I understand that connecting (2) 8 ohm drivers together in parallel equals a 4 ohm load. If a do this to each pair of speaker outlets on this amplifier in a bi-wire configuration is it still a 4 ohm load on the amplifier ? Or would it lower ?

Thanks Peter for attempting to assist me. 
I called PS Audio today and “yes” I can connect a 4ohm load to each pair of speaker outputs. Like if I was configuring it in a bi-wire mode.
