Hi, I have a pair of jvc bookshelf speakers which both have a sticker on back that says a single one of the speakers is 4 ohms. I was just wondering if two 4 ohm speakers plugged into the L and R plugs on the back of amplifier would equal 8 ohms or would it still be 4 ohms? just because there is a speaker impedance setting on amplifier which you can choose from either 4 or 6 ohms. If someone could clear this up for me it would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
Michael

4 ohms each speaker but the amplifier doesn't add up to say it is 1 8 ohms speaker

it handles each speaker independent so each ohm values affect each output, unless you mix up one 4 and one 6 or one 8ohms speaker

which most amplifiers doesn't like and usually gives problems with volume levels
