    well the only thing is you will lower your over all ohm load and your receiver may run rather hot or shut off


    and the kenwoods are designed for a certain enclosure and your towers may be different and most likely will

    he would not necessarily lower the ohm load. It depends on what ohm load the current sub is. it also depends on whether or not that setup is wired in parrallel, technically adding that sub could raise it. check the back of the subs

    Well even if it does work at the same impedence, it would very likely sound like crap. The crossover would not be optimized for that speaker, nor is the speaker designed to operate above 150hz. The box design is most likely inncorrect too for that woofer.

    chances are its an 8 or higher ohm driver ;)

    and lets also review hmm car drivers average impedance is 4 ohms all home stuff is 8 his chances of lowering his over all load are extremely high plus most of them have different crossovers IF ANY crossovers just like 042801 said

    didn't he say it was a floor speaker? with multiple speakers getting on connection from the amp, that would mean the speakers were either wired in some kind of parallel or they were only a few ohms each

    yes he said it was a standing floor speaker.. open one up sometime ;) they usually lack crossovers on the subs and the mids simply have one cap.. thus the whole sound like crap thing ;) and also they are usually never a low impedance driver. The box WONT be tuned correctly for the speaker and again it will most likely lower the over all nominal load :bigthumb:
