    what happens when u run a 4 ohm speaker at a 2 ohm load?

    ok this is my deal i need to 6 total speakers to my 4 chan amp 4 speakers for midbass and 2 for tweeter. all these speakers a svc 4ohm so on chan 1&2 i need to run 2 speakers to each chan which will give me a 2 ohm load on these four ohm speakers. the tweeters will be on chan 3 &4 so they will be running at a 4ohm load but my question is this will I be able to run a 4 ohm speakers at a 2 ohm load?
    Also since it is a 4chan amp i am not sure exactly how it will work but since chan 1 &2 will be at 2ohm load and 3&4 will be at a 4ohm load is this even possible to do???

    Speakers will still be 4ohms each, the amp will see a 2omh load, which shouldn't be a problem as most are 2ohm stable.

    I run the same thing in my set up, with the tweeters on the other 2 channels and it's no problem.

    If for some reason your amp won't do it, you could always run the tweets off the HU or pick up a cheapo 2 channel to power them. Normally tweets need very little power.
