So my old Fisher Stereo amplifier finally died, it was a great unit, but 30 years old.
I have an HTIB amplifier, Onkyo HT-R510, that doesn't support HDMI. So I bought an updated one for my HT.
I want to use the Onkyo as a Stereo amplifier for both indoor and outdoor. Problem is my outdoor speakers are Yamaha's that are 6 ohm, the Onkyo outputs 8 ohms.
I hooked it up, not a lot sound, and when I cranked up the volume the amp must have overloaded and shut down. I hooked up the original speakers, everything works.
I have tried the Yamaha's as both A & B speakers to no avail. Do I have to ditch my Yamaha's or is there something I can do to use the amp with them.
I've done some research, but I'd really like a link to speaker impedance vs amp output.
Thanks for your help,
