  • Electrical: Correct Speakers

    Is it correct that today's speakers will not work on my AM radio?

    No, at least not necessarily. Check the ohm rating for the radio and get speakers to match. SI sells ones that should work fine.

      The speaker impedence depends on whether your radio is one of the earlier or later models. the radios with tube output circuits use a 3.2 ohm speaker and the later radios using a transistor output use a 10 ohm speaker. Since a 10 ohm speaker is not readily available, an 8 ohm speaker can be used.The earlier radios using tubes can use the newer 4 ohm speakers. Bud

        Also consider if you are using more than one speaker, wiring in series or parallel will affect the load to the amplifier.
