Let's say I have a speaker that's rated 1400 watts @ 8 ohms (2800 peak) and then I have an amplifier that's rated (peak per channel) 1800 watts @ 8 ohms 2800 watts at 4 ohms. This means that if I plug in one speaker it will run at 8 ohm and push out up to 1800 watts. If I put a second speaker in the chain it will go down to 4 ohm and run at 2800 watts.

The speaker only gives one rating. Does it have a different rating (similar to the amp) if it's only getting 4 ohms? Or is giving it 2800 watts at 4 ohms actually very bad since it's only rated to handle 1400 watts?

Thanks tribe.
