Default Ohms HELP!!

Hi all,

Have just bought a Peavey XR684 powered mixer and am slightly (only slightly!) confused over the speaker ohmage limitations.

Heres the manual:

SO....taking into account I'll NEVER use the bridge output....can I have 4 speakers ( 2 either side ) @ 4 ohms each to get max power?? ....

OR...4 speakers ( 2 either side) @ 8 ohms each?

Slightly confusing...or is it just me?

Ta in advance, Si

Hi, i think 8 ohms for each load will not be sufficient. Also it depends upon your Amps power. To deliver max power to each load you have to follow the max power transfer rule and make the output impedance equal to input impedance.
