It's a good idea to have amplifiers which are capable of running at 2 ohms, but only run them at 4 ohms.  In the case of an amp failure, another amp can be used to run two speakers to allow the show to continue.


I wouldn't have an amp running at 2 ohms by design.


Steve.

That is exactly the situation we have here.  The amp spec I linked shows it can run into 2 ohms but I am recommending 4 ohms to maximize head room.  You seem to be confirming what I wrote?

There are very few manufacturers willing to give a spec for a 2 ohm load.  That may or may not indicate an amps true capability but I tread it that way regardless.

I would be very uncomfortable running any amp into 2 ohms BTW.  Especially in this case as the severe reduction in power in the spec is counter to the rough guide that power should be roughly, inversely proportional to the load.  I suspect this amp would have a very hard and short life with a 2 ohm load.
