6 speakers on 4-channels stereo!!

Recommended Posts

Hi Mukhalled,
Most car stereos produce 50 Whats for a moment for each of their four channels for a total of 200 Whats. The outputs at such a high level will have very high distortion and since it isn't continuous, I call it Whats.
They produce only about 14 Watts continuously for each of their four channels at clipping into a 4 ohm load. At clipping the power is high but the distortion is low.

You don't show how the speakers are wired. In diagram B you don't show if the speakers are in series or are in parallel.

If you connect two 8 ohm speakers in parallel then the total is 4 ohms and will work fine. Two 8 ohm speakers in parallel will share the 14 Watts and produce 7 Watts each.

Hi Mr. Audioguru,
Thanks for the explanation of the "fake" power of the car stereo  ;D
Yes im sorry i forgot to say how the speakers were wired. I chose 8ohm each to get 4ohm in parallel connection.

Thanks in advance
