Hey im looking to upgrade my live sound equipment. I am getting speaker cabinets that are not powered, so i have to get a separate power amp for them. I was looking at some and i noticed that the wattage goes up with the ohms. ex- 1,000W/ch @ 2 ohms, 800W/ch @ 4 ohms, 475W/ch @ 8 ohms, 2,000W bridged mono @ 4 ohms, 1,600W bridged mono @ 8 ohms. What exactly do the ohms do and what does it mean by bridged? Thank you

Well, ohms are resistance. I=Voltage/Resistance More ohms means less current which means less Wattage. (I think, anyway I'm no good with electronics) Don't know what bridged is

More Strings=More Range=More BadAssery

Ohms mean resistance in the electric current. If you connect the cables wrong then you could potentially fry your amp and speakers. I'm no expert so I think it's better if someone more capable on this matter will help you. Cheers!

You're right.

Effect = Voltage · Current

Less current, less effect (watt).

okay well i think ive narrowed it down to just changing the ohm level. should there be a knob of some sort to change it on the amp or how do you change them?
