Mentioning 2 ohm leads me to think maybe you are thinking car audio?

Regardless, here we go.

An ohm is a measure of resistance.Lower Ohms mean easier power flow, and an easier path for an amp to deliver power.
Unfortunately, an amplifier is only made to deliver so much power.
Too few Ohms mean the amp is closer to short circuit(zero Ohms).
