Ummm easier to give links then explain this stuff methinks: ... ching.html

And yes, your speakers will get approximately 35wrms. Although the impedance doesn't remain perfectly constant across frequencies.

its basically the load on the amp, the lower the ohmage the more load but louder the sound, just remember 1 ohm is almost a dead short. why car sound can go down to 2 ohms is because of the amount of amps the battery can put out as opposed to home hi-fi, the transformer and bridge rectifier would be the size of a slab of beer!!
