What is more powerful, 3 ohms or 8 ohms?

Answer

3 Ohms is more powerful than 8 Ohms. This is because Ohm is the measure of resistance in a circuit to the flow of an electric current. This means 8 Ohms is more difficult for current to flow through a given circuit.
1 Additional Answer
Ohm is the measure of resistance in a circuit to the flow of an electric current. The greater the ohm value the more difficult it is for current to flow through a given circuit. As speaker impedance decreases, more current flows and the amplifier is called upon to output more power to the speaker.
