okay on mine,.....
not the plus,....
which means mine have pots, all set straight up, stock woofers and ribbons.....
checking with both jumpers in I get 6.4ohm
just the woofer, I have 6.4 (pot straight up) but if I turn the pot it changes the ohms reading
just the ribbon it goes to 4.0ohm then meter goes open, so my guess is the caps in the xover do this
if you want to check the ribbon,....
look at the backside, right at the point the ribbon frame meets the woofer cabinet there you can see the ribbon wire connection point, put your meter here.
I get 1.8/1.9ohm
so if I read this right, it plays if the woofers are unhooked? does not clip the amp.
well if thats the case I bet the woofers are shot....
I have 2 sets of the, and all 4 woofers had issues, 2 fully blown,(rubbing VC, and melted)
the other set the spiders had busted loose, letting the VC rub the pole, making noise, and a short.....
