Easy Math Free Impedance (Ohms)

Recommended Posts

bump. Jazz, I think i'm pretty much done here if you want this to go in the faq. Unless anyone has a suggestion of something to add/change that is.

What about running with no cab? Some people think this is bad for amps, which is actually true of tube amps (see part 4). But with a solid state amp, no cab is essentially infinite impedance, it won't try to draw any current at all and won't harm your solid state amp in any way.

 

While this is generally true, what you don’t want to do is change the speaker configuration while the amp is turned on. Unplugging the speaker (or plugging it in) while the amp is on can short the speaker output, resulting in no impedance load, which can fry a solid state amp.
