    speaker 8ohm help

    Hi all,

    I have an 8 ohm speaker and I'm trying to figure out how to make it work!

    I tried to plug it into a simple amp circuit that produce a 0.1V as output on the speaker end. doesn't work!

    any suggestion? I thought that an 8ohm 0.1W speaker was perfect....I'm quite sure there's something that Im completely missing here!

    Try a battery to hear a "plop" sound. If not, the speaker is dead

    The question is, what is the circuit you are using to try and drive the speaker?

    WHich is it, .1v or .1w?
    Education is what you're left with after you have forgotten what you have learned.
