    A Historical Perspective of the Loudspeaker Impedance Specification

    The article brought back memories when Stereo Review magazine's Julien Hirsch routinely published the RMS amp output against the manufacturer's inflated claim, similarly the correct speaker impedance against the fudged impedance from the manufacturer. The small Advent speakers were more or less the gold standard for moderate priced speakers. Stereo Review reviews were matter of fact and no flowery descriptions.
