I need help correcting impediance on speakers. Answered
Here's some background on what I'm dealing with: I run a haunted house in Nashville TN called Devil's Dungeon. We have a sound system that is controlled from a rack with 6 2 channel power amps. 4 of them are 260W by 2 channel and 2 are 500W by 2 channel. I have 10 cd players running to a 24 channel mixing console and the way I control each room on a separate channel is by using the post-fader sends (yeah, it's a really old peavey, but the new ones don't have post -fader sends per channel) as a line out per channel. IE: i run a line directly from the post-fader send per channel to the power amp's input. Here's my problem: There are more speakers than there are outputs, and the speakers are placed where they are needed in a particular scene. It is a large building and it would be highly laborious to try and correct the impedance by putting extra speakers and with series/parallel combinations and as we are already open this season and I don't want to re-engineer the entire system. Is there any way to correct the impedance with some kind of variable resistor? Everything I've seen so far that could handle the power is pretty large, and if possible, I'd like to put it in a relatively small project box. Can this be done with a potentiometer? I only need to correct it by a few ohms and the only POT's I've seen have been in K increments .
