I've hit a bit of a snag with my stereo project.
I have a 2-channel amplifier from eBay, and I've been using it with 4Ohm speakers, one on each channel.
Now I planned to upgrade it with tweeters. I got a 3.9uF capacitor for my tweeters, thinking of connecting it in parallel. I got a set of tweeters of 8Ohms each.
I realized something..
Connecting my 4Ohm speaker and 8Ohm Tweeter (Tweeter in series with a Capacitor) in Parallel, results in a net resistance of 2.67 Ohms and will cause a problem for my amplifier.
It seems putting these two speakers in series will be better as it will give a net impedance of 12 Ohms. But Where how can I connect the capacitor (as a high-pass filter) for my Tweeter?
Any other way I could proceed with this?
I saw a method to do it in series..
But I do NOT have a Low pass filter (I assume an inductor)..It would be better, because I don't have the time to procure other components :(
