Default Help this dummy

I'm in the "daydreaming" phase of building a speaker system. I'm thinking, 2-6 1/2 drivers and a tweeter with passive crossover.

What combination of impedances do I need to end up with 4 ohms.

What part does the crossover play in impedance?

Poor stereo mix? Switch to mono! Perfect.

This is really oversimplifying things....

To get a nominal 4 ohm speaker use two 8 ohm nominal drivers wired in parallel.

The crossover "manages" impedance so the driver receives less current at various frequencies.

Check out the loudspeaker wiki, these questions have all been addressed.

Welcome to the forums. You may as well get used to the daydreaming phase, it never really stops :-)
