    Ohm rating on speaker vs Ohm on headset

    My head set is 22x4 rms at 4 ohm
    http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...H-P5900iB.html

    and the speakers are 2 ohm
    http://www.sonicelectronix.com/item_...pa+62.7i.html#

    what will happen with the wattage?

    2 ohm speakers will make your headunit shut off at high volume, and sound distorted at low volume. Don't do it.

    Re: Ohm rating on speaker vs Ohm on headset

    Audio
    Maximum power output ....... 50 W × 4
    50 W × 2/4 ohm + 70 W × 1/2
    ohm (for subwoofer)

    Continuous power output ... 22 W × 4 (50 Hz to 15 000
    Hz, 5% THD, 4 ohm load, both
    channels driven)

    Load impedance ...................... 4 ohm to 8 ohm × 4
    4 ohm to 8 ohm × 2 + 2 ohm × 1

    thats the info it gives me

    those are the numbers for the head unit and the speaker will be wired right to it

    the cooling in most head units isn't capable of dealing with the extra heat created by running at 2 ohms. Just get 4 ohm speakers.
