  • speaker question.
    by Gemini2544
    I need to replace a speaker on an 1980's Whites 6000d metal detector, It's a 66mm 16ohm 0.25watt. Now I can't find the exact one but I can get a 57mm 8ohm 1watt replacement. so would putting a 8ohm resistor across the terminal work OK or due to the wattage being 3 times higher pull down the load anyway?...
