I've upgraded speakers on my past Sam systems with good results and thought it would be a good idea to upgrade the speakers on my Iron Maiden. When I went to inspect the cabinet speaker I saw it was 4ohm so I ordered a 4ohm cabinet speaker and 4ohm backbox speakers. Yesterday when I went to install the backbox speakers I saw they were 8ohm and not 4ohm like the cabinet speaker.
I hooked everything up and switched the settings for both the backbox and cabinet speaker to 4ohms. I noticed that I was barely getting anything out of the cabinet speaker but if I switched the setting to 8ohm it came to life! For the backbox speakers set on 4 ohm I have to crank the volume up pretty high, 35 or more, to get good volume, but with the factory speakers it was pretty loud at 11 or so. Do I have my settings right for the speakers I have? Do I need to go back to 8ohm speakers for the backbox?
