SE84ZSM Information
08/23/13 at 21:20:35
 
I notice that these speakers are rated at 2.3 watts into 4ohms. I am contemplating purchasing a pair of these monos but my speakers are 8 ohms. What are the consequences? would I get the best out of these amps?

Regards

What kind of speakers do you have?  Make/model?

It depends in part on the sensitivity of the speakers. If they are high sensitivity it might do the trick.

101dB is really efficient!  I would say that you should be able you hit some good volume with this combo.

There is an option for a 6-16 ohm output transformer, and if you were using the Soul Superflys at 16 ohms I would say get the 6-16 ohm ... but after chatting to a lot of people on this forum it seems like the real magic for these particular amps is with the 2 - 6 ohm output transformer and since your speakers are so efficient I'm thinking this combo would work nicely.

But I would talk with Steve first and see what he has to say before you place  your order.
