Hi ,

I have searched far and wide for this but I am running my 4 ohm components wired to 2 ohm load on a 2 channel amp. I have coaxials in the rear running on 2 ohm load (4 ohm speakers). I am getting extremely bright tweeters on my components. Is this because I am running 2 ohm load through my crossover which was probably designed for a 4 ohm load? I am going to try running my on sepparate channels and scrap the rea coax - but I was curious to ask first.

JBL GT7-6c
some SPL 2 channel amp which is ancient
rears are KFC 6965s kenwood
deck is a pioneer 1300NEX

Id appreciate clarification on this one as I cannot find any info anywhere on this type of setup on google

Running at two ohms basically doubles your amplifier's output. So tweeters are getting twice the power output at your regular listening volume.

Are you running 2 sets of speakers on the 2 channel amplifier?

No this will not affect the tweeters when you have passive crossovers installed.
