View Full Version : 10 ohms speaker

I got two mid-range drivers plus two tweeters but they are rated at 15w at 10ohms. Now I can use for my second zone but would love to enjoy this quality in my car since I have to built a case for them. I would like to understand what power source I will require to make these bad boys play beautifully in a vehicle or get a power source to make them more portable.

Generally auto speakers are 4 ohms if you use the tweeter and midrange in parallel to get to 5 ohms you'd probably be alright, however, you'll need some way of a crossover which may make it difficult to use them in parallel. Also, they are only 15 watts which I personally wouldn't use anything more than a high power head unit with them. At a minimum you'd need a coil to keep low frequencies from damaging the tweeters. I don't install so you will have to find some one more knowledgeable than me to recommend a coil size.
