Tube amp speaker impedance

Postby NoSock » 25 Feb 2017, 23:48

I got a kinda flowed diy tube amp with 2 different speaker outputs. I assume they are for different impedance cabs, but they are not labled. Is there a way to determine the right numbers for it?

The most likely outputs are going to be a 4 Ohm tap and an 8 Ohm tap. These will read much lower than 4 and 8 Ohm,, maybe even 1 ~to 3 Ohms.
The lowest reading will be 4 Ohm and the higher reading will the 8 Ohm tap. :thumbsup

Thanks a lot!

it's actually 1,4 and 1,7 Ohms (which seems pretty close to me).
