    PG Xenon 200.4 at 8 ohm?

    Quick question: Will there be any issue running a 200.4 with 6-8 ohm drivers on each channel? In theory, an amplifier's output should simply halved by doubling the resistance, but I'm not exactly sure how amplifiers such as these and JL slash series handle higher resistance. I mistakenly thought they were rated from 2-8ohm (not 1-4ohm), and I've purchased some 6 and 8 ohm drivers. They only require 100W tops, so I have the overhead to cover them if the output's halved, but will there be any other issues?

    You will be fine. The amp will actually love you for it. You'll still get about 125 x 4 out of it.

    I certainly hope it sounds clean as hell! And now I'm just now realizing that I DIDNT buy the tweets with 6 ohm resistance lol dear God I need sleep! I got seas textiles which are 4 ohm...woofers are 8 though.
