    First of all, don't know if this should come under amps or speakers but i will guess here.

    Been reading my manual and it says i should only buy speakers that match the recommened ohms (something like that anyway) for my amp.

    anyone have a link or a guide to what this and other av tech meens in my language :)


    also is it best to go above or lower of the recommended?


    Noob question i know, but hey i am a noob and proud :smashin:

    and also ( i know again ) what is immpedence?

    Generally above, i.e. chose 8 Ohm over 4 Ohm.

    AC (alternate current) resistance. Impedance is not a constant, it varies with frequency.
    DC (direct current) resistance in comparision is a constant.
