Hi All, I came accross a new Eiki 16mm loudspeaker splitter (don't know if it's its real name), but I got no specs on it and found nothing on the net. Does any of you know how it works in terms of Ohms of the two speakers? Should I consider the usual rule for resistance of objects connected in parallel?

Looking at one of my Eiki/Elf projectors I see that the two speakers in its side cover are each 16 ohms. They are wired in parallel thus giving a total impedance of 8 ohms at the projector's speaker output socket. This is confirmed by the tag alongside the socket marked "SPEAKER 8 OHMS".
In the box illustrated the two jack sockets certainly look as if they are wired in parallel.
I suspect that the two unknown components provide some form of impedance matching to allow two standard Eiki/Elf side cover speakers to be connected for extra sound output.
Referring to the manual for a SNT/ENT there is no mention of this accessory, only "25 watt RMS into 8 ohm load".
Perhaps another member will know the correct details about this accessory.
