Used as a measure of resistance as well as impedance, this specification is most often associated with speakers because they offer resistance to an amplifier's power.

a measure of resistance and impedance, which tells you how much a device will resist the flow of current in a circuit

Ideas underlying the development of electricity first theorized by George Simon Ohm in 1827. A measurement of the strain, in terms of efficiency, imposed on an amplifier in order for it to drive a set of speakers. The lower the Ohm rating the more strain or efficiency an amplifier can handle. Ohms reemerged topically due partially to the trend of separate subwoofers and small, powerful bookshelf speakers. These speakers were designed for an inherently inefficient process, driving large sound out of a tiny speaker box. Many audio products now require a 6 or 4 Ohm rated amplifier to drive tiny speakers. A speaker rated at 8 ohms can easily fluctuate between 4 and 16 Ohms, or throughout the frequency spectrum. Make sure your receiver has an Ohm rating that covers your speakers.

Ohm is the unit used to measure the resistance presented by a loudspeaker when a it is introduced a signal by an amplifier. (The word Ohm comes from German physicist Georg Simon Ohm, 1787–1854). Conventional wisdom makes an 8 ohm loudspeaker load the most acceptable because it "protects" the amplifier from delivering too much current. A 4 ohm loudspeaker can encourage a marginally designed amplifier to deliver more current than it comfortably can. All speakers in your home theater system should have the same Ohm rating.
