View Full Version : Help with Rainbow comps

Hey everyone I have the rainbow slx dreamlines, and got a question about em.

The website says the set has an impedance of 4 ohms, and it says 4 ohm on the back of the woofer, does anyone know the impedance of the tweeter? Im assuming it's 4 ohms also, but you have to wire the tweeter and woofer individially to the same channel (the + from the tweeter and + on the woofer both go in the same channel, same with the -), so wouldnt that create a 2 ohm load? Just trying to find an amp for these and it got me thinking....

Anyone have any input?

If you are going passive (using the crossover) there is a final ohm load of 4. the crossover makes it 4 ohms. if not the tweet is also 4 ohm.

Well only the tweeter has a xover, the woofer plays fullrange (except the amp xover). So if the woofer and tweeter were both 4 ohms, and theyre both wired to the same channel, wouldnt that create a 2 ohm load? Might have to ask rainbow's tech....:crap:
