How many watts?
If I have a 200rms mono amp running two speakers, svc 4ohm running parallel to make 2ohms going to the amp, how many watts are each speaker getting?

Re: How many watts?
I don't know, but 2 ohms is putting a heck of a load on the amp. Are you sure the amp is built to withstand a 2 ohm load? If it's not, you could fry the amp..........

Re: How many watts?
The amp is rated at 200 watts rms at a 2ohm load. I was wondering though, is there away to increase the ohm's to decrease the resistance?

Only way I know of is to buy new speakers, but I'm not an electronics whiz. It may have something to do with the crossover too, but I'm not sure.

Changing out the speakers would make it simpler, you're right there. I was just reading up on my electronics and was wondering if I was maxing it out.

Re: How many watts?
Increasing the ohms actually raises the resistance and decreases the current and lowering the wattage of the speaker. There is now way to increase the resistance of a speaker to the best of my knowledge. Well unless you want to disassemble it and build it back from scratch. In any case a mono amp won't let you take full advantage of two speakers, hence the name mono=one.
