i have some emotiva UPA 1 amps and i notice there's room to hook up two speakers on each one. is there a maximum ohm load these can handle? is it wise to hook up two speakers to an emotiva UPA 1 amp? why is there two sets of binding posts here? i think one of my speakers has a 6 ohm rating and my other kind of speaker has an 8 ohm rating for a total of 14 ohms if these were hooked up to one amp.(i have an extra pair of speakers laying around and wondered if i could hook them up to these amps along with my main speakers) thanks, john
to facilitate biwiring, not necessarily two pairs of speakers. However, the UPA-1s can handle a 4 Ohm load, so connect your selected loudspeakers accordingly.
A pair of 6 Ohm speakers and a pair of 8 Ohm speakers connected to the two pairs of binding posts on the UPA-1 (parallel) would result in an impedance of 3.4286, not 14 Ohms. Not advised.
hey thanks, that helps alot. although my gut instinct was not to hook up these two speakers to the one UPA 1. thanks again jackfish, best regards.
