ok, it's official. i am an idiot.
the question i'm asking, (and which was probably explained in the 12volt.whatever link) is:
what is the difference between speakers (for example) that are rated at 4 ohms, versus speakers rated at 2 ohms.
and which do i choose if i'm using my stock deck with an LOC to an amplifier powering a single ten, or two eights.
in my search for speakers, this is one of the choices that i'm requiired to make, but i don't have a freakin clue as to what the **** it is.
an ohm is a unit of measure used to describe the relative resistance of current flow, but why does it matter, and at what point does it become critical?
or will the speakers simply not work if plugged into the incorrect amp choice?
i apologize if this is indeed child's play, but i never paid much attention to it when throwing systems together before. i wonder if i've been selling myself short by not knowing....
