I know that you can play a guitar through bass speakers and not hurt them but i was wondering if a bass head rated at 4 ohms would hurt guitar speakers rated at 8 ohms. ihave no idea what ohms means people have tried explain it to me but i still cant seem to grasp it
It will beat the crap out of the speakers, since the frequencies arn't suited to guitar. Aside from soundng like ass.

Don't know what is was exactly.. but something like.. when you play at a to high volume level you can realy mess up your pre-amp.. of course, when the impedance is 4 ohm on your speakers and 8 ohm's on your amp (or was it the other way arround? )

Don't know for sure.. it was something like that

Yeah, you can do it, but I wouldn't recommend you do.

you cant do it. the ohms are a mismatch and the speakers cant handle it.

so if u tried. u could fry the amp head (mismatch) and blow the speakers all at the same time.
