Default Monoprice 8" in Ceiling Speakers Ohm Question

I all

I have a question about the Monoprice 8" in Ceiling Speakers. I recently purchased a set of 8" Woofer In-Ceiling Speakers Product ID: 4929.

Their web site says in red Note: These speakers are rated as 4Ohms.

I contacted Monoprice and was told they are actually 8 Ohm speakers. This was confirmed by two different reps

Plus the box says the speakers are 8 Ohm...

So, I dont know what's going on

Do I believe the online reps, the box or what the web site shows?

Believe the box and more importantly what is printed on the speaker itself...

Does such a thing as a 40 ohm speaker exist and what would you use to drive it?

Yes. A receiver rated for 4 ohms. The back panel will tell you that info.

I have never herd of or seen a 40 Ohm speaker...There would be so much resistance you would need a 1500 watt per channel amplifier to drive it.

Its a typo on their web site. It should be 4 Ohms instead of 4Ohms.

I still cant get a straight answer from Monoprice either.

Four techs... two say its a 4 Ohm speaker and the other two say its an 8
