## What brands use Eminence speakers?

One of the World’s Largest Loudspeaker Manufacturers. Today, Eminence provides OEM speakers for some of the industry’s heaviest hitters — Fender, Peavey, Yamaha, Ampeg, and more — as well as a diverse range of quality aftermarket replacements for all musical applications.

**What should a 4 ohm speaker read?**

AC impedance will always be greater than the DC resistance, a typical 16 ohm speaker will measure approximately 12 ohms, an 8 ohm speaker will usually measure between 5 and 7 ohms and a 4 ohm speaker will usually measure between 2.5 and 3.5 ohms.

**How do you read a speaker code?**

The first 3 digits on a pot, or the first 2, 3 or 4 digits on a speaker are the source or manufacturer code. The remaining 3 or 4 digits are the date code. In 3 digit dates code, the 1st digit is the last digit of the year. On 4 digits date codes, the 1st and 2nd digits are the last two digits of the year.

### Can you run a 4 ohm amp into an 8 ohm speaker?

Yes, your amp can handle 8 ohm speakers. With ohms, it’s the low numbers you need to be concerned with. Ohms is a measure of resistance. Low resistance is what could fry an amp.

**Where are Jensen speakers made?**

Although the American company is long out of business, “reissue” guitar speakers are currently made in Italy by SICA Altoparlanti and distributed in the United States by CE Distribution.

**What ohms are better for bass?**

A subwoofer with a lower electrical resistance produces a louder sound than one with a high electrical resistance, which means that 2ohm subwoofers are louder than 4ohm ones. Although louder, 2 ohm subwoofers are also more likely to produce a poorer quality of sound due to its’ power consumption.

## Do ohms affect sound quality?

Lower speaker impedances in amplifiers require less power from an amplifier. Still, because most amplifiers will sound best at lower impedance loads, a speaker rated for higher impedance may be out of tune. High-impedance speakers (above 8 ohms) work best when partnered with high-impedance amplifiers (above 8 ohms).
