Taboo and 16ohms
05/28/08 at 22:05:51
 
 I've been looking at a couple of different fullrange drivers that I want to save up for(it'll be a while).  One is the AER MK1 (8'') 102.5 db and 16 ohms ,and the other is the Feastrex D5nf (12cm) 95db and 16ohms.  Will the Taboo perform well into the 16ohm load as it does into 8ohms?, or should it be tweaked for 16ohms exclusively?  Been using the Taboo  with 8ohm 90db drivers and all has been most excellent..  I know the Taboo is rated for 16ohms ,but just wondered what I could expect or if that load is even better for the amp as the power draw should be less(?)..     Dave Smiley

The Taboo uses EX transformers and is ideally suited for 8 and 16 ohm speakers.  16 ohm speakers will increase the headroom and make for more graceful clipping.
