Speaker - Jensen® Jets, 12", Electric Lightning, 70W

Question:
Can i install this in my Marshall code amp? stock 50 watt 4 ohm speaker to Jensen 4 ohm 70 watt speaker, some store reps says yes but others so no.

Answer:
OOPS! Disregard the previous answer from "staff member" Matt. It is wrong. Listen up Matt and Anonymous. Two 8 ohm speakers wired in series will give you a 16 ohm load (NOT 4 ohm). Wire them in parallel and you WILL get a 4 ohm load. That's good. However, if you have room for only one speaker it doesn't help. You can have a higher ohm load on your amp and it won't hurt a thing. NEVER go with LESS than your rated speaker load or you'll cook your amp. So...yep you can put an 8 ohm speaker in it. It just won't be as loud as a 4 ohm speaker. The load actually fluctuates with the frequencies that hit the speaker. Low frequencies create more resistance than high frequencies in the speaker. a DC ohm reading with a meter of an 8 ohm speaker will usually be around 6 ohms. Good luck Anonymous. The Electric Lightnings are awesome by the way.
