Hi. I have some speakers from a 1970s church organ, that I would like to use for a rock band,
and I am trying to find out what kind of amplifier would be required.
There are two units, each about 3 feet square, built of plywood and open in the back. Each unit
has four speaker cones that are roughly 12 inches in diameter. Each cone is stamped 8 ohms, and
when I put a multimeter on the input terminals of one unit, I also get a total of 8 ohms.
Each unit also has something that looks like a transformer mounted inside the box and hooked to
the main leads coming in.
I read the Crown article, How Much Amplifier Power Do I Need?, but I have no data sheets
for these units. Is it possible to determine an appropriate amp from the information I have given?
I have some digital photos, but I did not know how to include them in this post. If anyone is
interested and might be able to provide advice, please email me and I will email the pics.
Thanks very much.
