I'm building a DIY frankenamp. It currently consists of a speaker cab with a 15 inch, 150w @ 8ohms celestion truvox red label, which is plugged into one channel of a Skytec pro600 stereo power amp.
The amp delivers 300w @ 4ohms to each channel - am I correct in thinking that this means my speaker will get 150w of power, given that it is 8ohms not 4ohms (and so it wont melt the coil)? If not, what wattage / impedence does the speaker need to cope?
Secondly, is there any way doing this could cause any damage to the amp 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 :)
