Setup is used mostly for SACD/DVD-A playback. I’ll be running a Parasound HCA-2003 (200x3) with my front sound stage (JBL S310 II & S-Center II). The S-Center II is rated at 150W max, but I didn’t think it would be a problem. Any feedback?

I think you should be alright. It is more important to worry about under-powering a speaker. Besides, as long as your center is not set to "large", it will only see a few watts at most.

I'm running a 260w amp to it on "small" and it never seems to mind. Like the above posts sez... it will probably never see >100w in a moderate sized room at less than deafening levels.

JamesCB: Yes, it is set to small.

KyleGS: Wow (260W!), that's reassuring. Go Tigers! Oh...sorry wrong tigers. WAR DAMN EAGLE!

THX! Good info guys, that's exactly what I wanted to know.

I run a sherbourn 7/2100 with the s-center (7x200) and s-38's all around and works awesome!

No NO- you had it correct. We are the original Tigers. We don't call ourselves by any other name. :)

...and to be perfectly correct it's GEAUX TIGERS! (cajun style) :)
