Hi . I want to build 4Ohm loudspeakers with crossover from 8Ohm drivers . Most of drivers i can find in resonable prices are 8Ohm here in shenzhen. How can i build 4Ohm speakers with 8Ohm drivers with crossover? As I am an civil engineer but new to builidng speakers so i want to understand it better. As simple as connecting 2 x 8Ohm in parallel will make their resistance 4Ohm but won’t be good setup . What i could do to make it good and have nice sound quality ? Please don’t give complicated advices , need to make it simple :)

There's nothing wrong with paralleling 2 x 8 ohm speakers to get a 4 ohm load.

Yes but how to use crossover if do parallel connection of two 8 ohm speakers to get 4 ohm ? As without crossover parallel connection of two 8 ohm speakers will give me 4 ohm but it would be direct connection without capacitor or crossover?
Thanks

you need to scale the crossover to accommodate the new impedance.
would you mind explaining why you seem to feel that impedance matters or affects sound quality?

Hi. My amplifier is 4ohm so i want to build also 4ohm speakers . But drivers i have are 8ohm and another set 6ohm . So i am just trying to understand how to build 4Ohm speakers from what i have . Regards

So if I parallel two 8ohm drivers i will get 4ohm yes but then how to use crossover to seperate frequency for both drivers ? As if i put capacitor for line to high tone driver it will become 8ohm system again ?
