I have a quick question about DIY component systems.
Been scouting parts for a DIY 3-way component system for my audi over the last few weeks, as i've been unhappy with my kenwood 25th anniversary 6.75's (i know, kenwood, i know, i know i know, i was an idiot)
but i digress, i'd like to keep my current 4-channel amplifier and bridge the amplifier to 2-channels, which will deliver 240w rms @ 4 ohms per door, which is more than enough, so i'm just gonna use a 3-way passive xover set
my question is regarding the resistance of speakers
if i have a 4ohm woofer, 4ohm midrange and a 6ohm tweeter, then what resistance will my amplifier see?
are the resistances combined at all? Or will my amplifier see a 4 ohm load on frequencies going to the woof, 4 ohm on frequencies going to the mid, and 6 ohms on frequencies going to the tweeter?
And if this is the case, what resistances will the amp see on in-between frequencies, that are going to two drivers (only 12db slopes)?
thanks guys, i know it's elementary, but need to make sure, and sometimes simple questions are the hardest ones to search for
