I'm building a DIY FrankenAmp. It currently consists of a speaker cab with a 15 inch, 150 W @ 8 ohms celestion truvox red label, which is plugged into one channel of a Skytec PRO-600 stereo power amplifier.
The amplifier delivers 300 W @ 4 ohm to each channel - am I correct in thinking that this means my speaker will get 150 W of power, given that it is 8 ohms, not 4 ohms (and so it won't melt the coil)? If not, what electrical power / impedance does the speaker need to cope with?
Secondly, is there a way doing this that could cause any damage to the amplifier or speaker?
I have given it a quick test and pushed up to halfway, and it was sounding great, but I don't want to risk anything before wiser heads have shared their wisdom :)
