Question HL vs Taigen speaker comparison

Not a big deal but might be of some interest to a few tanker brothers like me. Be interesting to see what the new "round" style HL speaker sounds like in comparison to the other two?

That's the Taigen 3W speaker against the original old-style 0.5 W Heng Long one, not the newest with round encasing.

Some time ago I asked to somebody to open the round box and check the speaker rating and if I remember correctly it was a 1W speaker (the square HL one is 0.5 W).

The last HL tanks, like the leopard and T34 have the same speakers as Taigen. You also can get them in a wallmart as laptop speakers, they are the same and you have two for the same price.

I wonder if anybody has tried to run two HL or Taigen style speakers off the RX-18? I would presume if you did you would need to run them in series as opposed to parallel?

Don't know about the new H.L. speaker, but the taigen speaker impedance is 4 OHMS...
If you put 2 of them in " parallel" , the total impedance goes down to 2 OHMS; and you may fry the audio amp. of the RX 18...
You would have to connect them in serial to get 8 OHMS impedance...
