I would like to know if there are any CJ owners out there that are currently running their Premier 11A at 4 ohms. My speakers have a nonimal impedance of 4 ohms (power hungry Hales T8's) and I'm contemplating a switch. Thanks.
You can call CJ directly and ask them about this, but the published power specs for all of the CJ amps are into 4 ohms, and you need to extrapolate the results for higher impededance loads. With this in mind, I'd have to assume that they'll work fabulously with 4 ohm speakers.
CJ told me to run the Premier 11-A as it was set up on both 8 ohm and/or 4 ohm speakers. They said it would not hurt a thing and would sound better. I don't remember the reasoning behind it but perhaps someone more knowledgeable than myself could explain.
The Premier 11-A is factory wired to output 4 ohms. They will make the internal changes to other impedences if the unit is returned to the factory. I have been driving the mids and highs of my Genesis V's (which are rated at 4 ohms) for some years now, with excellent results.
