Default Dear Steve Eddy .......... :)

If I paralled 4 .. 8 Ohm drivers for 2 Ohm
Can you suggest an off the shelf toroid
pwr xfm that will convert the 2 Ohm up to 8 Ohm

Along with the theory ?

By ear too. But the xfr is the question, not the reasoning behind it ?

Ah, ok.

Well, to reflect your 2 ohm speaker load as an 8 ohm load to the amp, you need a turns ratio of 2:1. Why does it have to be a toroid? Why not something like a 220:110 autoformer?

hmm ... I think its the other way round

but special air core toriods are good for big inductors in speaker crossovers
