Is there such a thing ?

If your amp only gives out 16 ohms, but your cab only does 8 ohms, anything you can use in between to convert from 16 to 8 ?


Or vice versa from 8 to 16 ?

You can rewire the cab depending on what speakers are in it to get the correct ohms.

Yea I know you can do that but what if that's not an option ?

Would be nice, sounds like someone could make some money off that idea.

Just rewire the speakers. It's a good skill to acquire and speakers are a great place to start since you won't blow anything up if you drip solder.

How many speakers at what ohmage do you have?
Everyone is entitled to an opinion.

Feel free to express yours so I can make an informed judgement about how stupid you are.

It's called a transformer. The impedance reflected to the primary is the square of the turns ratio times the load impedance.

Cool, so basically it's a sort of impedance matching device. I've read about some patents online but no such 'adapter' unit for sale, at least not in the desired ohm input/output we want.


I bet it would be handy to use if you don't wanna rewire your cabinet.


I am pretty sure it would not affect the tone since it may not need to be powered.

Audio transformers are a common place component. All tube amps have them on the output, you just need to buy one with the right turns ratio and wire it in. Hell, you can wind them yourself even.
