how much gain is too much for the PL-28II

im running a pair of BIC Acoustech PL-28II Center Speakers - off a crown xli 800 as duel centers they sound great but some times they distort iv got

the crown at gain knob at 40% is that to hi the amp sensitivity set at .775Vrms an

my outlaw audio 976 receiver has a 4volt xlr output ,an my current signal
output to the centers is at - 7db im not using the eq because iv found that

almost everythinng sound great without it ,, that being said every once an while i get some distortion at 5000khz an 7000khz , i am wondering if

upgrading to the crown xls 1002 an using the lowpass or bandpass filter options
would help

any advice let me know

please forgive if i sound like a noob

anything worth doing is worth overdoing

Re: how much gain is too much for the PL-28II

Why are you using two centers? You will likely have comb filtering and phase issues like crazy. In general a bad idea. Instead of buying an amp to power both, Iíd spend the money on a better center.
