  1. Which of these Amps should I use with my existing theater sound system?

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    First of all, I am a newbie in AVS. I know very little about amp selection. The HT-E5550WK Samsung Bluray disc player of my theater system has stopped working. Since I don't watch movies from disc anymore (I watch from a TV box nowadays), I would prefer to get a new amps with HDMI in/output...
  2. Measuring Ohms for each speaker.

    Home Theater Receivers | Processors | Amps
    Since I've been experiencing problems with my Denon x4000 going into protection mode at random times either when playing music to all speakers at normal volumes for about 4-5 hrs or at times 2-3 hrs, i decided to check for shorts on the speaker wires. At first I thought this was an overheating...
  3. 4 ohms in series

    IB - Infinite Baffle Subwoofer Build Projects
    I have a 4 IB manifold. 2 IB's are facing in the manifold, and 2 I have facing out 'room constrictions' What would be the correct way to wire these so they stay in series and all work in the same direction? All IB's are 4 ohms, I want to finish with a 4 ohm load. Would I be right in...

    Home Audio Speakers
    I'll be getting some floor standing speakers to replace my hsu research speakers book shelfs,and will be getting Pioneer sp-fss1-lr which are rated a 6 ohm and the hsu are 8. I'll be using my bookshelfs hsu's as side surrounds. Will it hurt my receiver or speakers if i run my pioneer elite 92 at...
  6. Speaker Ohms vs Amp Power - (Impedance, Power and Efficiency) Are your speakers and receiver/amp made for each other?

    Home Theater System Recommendations
    I've seen this question asked many times in the past, and it's been answered a fair share before too, so while some of this is repetitive, I wanted to try to make the concept of how this works a bit easier to understand for newbies. You've probably heard the analogy before, but that's because...
  7. TX-SR 608 driving 4 ohms?

    Home Audio Speakers
    I got a great deal on a lsi c center channel from Polk, not realizing it is rated as a 4 ohm speaker. I'm driving it with a Onkyo TX-SR 608, which appears to be tested for continuous 6 ohm use but the specs say nothing about 4 ohm. Should I see this as a problem? Am I asking for trouble? Or is...
  8. Yamaha RX765 and ohms...

    Home Theater Systems | Equipment
    One technical question... I have a Yamaha RX-765, connected to 2 Infinity Clasia C336, each of 8hms, and an Infinity Subwoofer. Initially I just wanted to hear my music, so the set up satisfied much of what I wanted. But then I purchased the OPPO BD83.... And I felt the need to move to a 5.1...
  9. Bash 500 @ 8 ohms - power output?

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Unfortunately, the Eclipse 10" drivers I have on hand are DVC 4 ohm each. I have two Bash 500 amplifiers. I was going to wire one per driver, but the impedance for each amp will have to be either 2 ohms (parallel) or 8 ohms (series). Even at the supposed 500 watts the Bash amps put out, the...
  10. ohms law failed? =O

    AV Home Theater
    Ok, well ohms law didnt really fail but I have a pair of car audio component speakers that are 4 ohm each. I wired the crossover input wires in parallel and got a 2 ohm load. When I wire it in series, it is still 4 ohm, not 8 ohm... Any help?
  11. Gizmo 8 ohms

    Remotes | Cables | Accessories | Tweaks
    I was just looking around trying to find what the Gizmo puts out for wattage at 8 ohms, but I can't seem to find it. Is it published anywhere?
  12. Running a behringer EP4000 2 x 2 ohms

    Subwoofer Amps | High Pass Filters
    Hi there, As I have been thinking of running two subs I will have to run each sub in series to give 2 ohms for each driver as they are D1 subs. This would mean I would have to run each channel of the behringer as 2 x 2 ohms, one for each sub. It quotes 1250 watts rms x2 into 2 ohms. Will this...
  13. Mixing ohms question.

    AV Home Theater
    Would there be a problem with mixing speakers with different ohm ratings. Besides making sure the amp can handle it is there some other reason not to do this? The reason I ask is that I have a set of nice bookshelf speakers that are 8ohm and a set of 4ohm speakers that have an input and output...
