    I noticed that the Pioneer VSX D912K says to use speakers with 8ohms impedance.

    I have an inherited set of Bose AM7s--does anybody know if they are compatible?

    Thanks in advance.

    I dunno if bose publishes much in the line of real specs for their products, so it might be tough to get a staright answer. My best guess is the speakers are 8ohm, maybe 6- either way you should be okay. A quick we search showed 8ohm rating for the Acoustimass 7 to be the most commonly touted spec...

    Keep a close eye on the pioneer-- see if it seems to be getting excessively hot. If it does, then reconsider your speaker choice. [​IMG]

    Do you have the full system with the bass module thing, or just the satellites?

    I inherited the 3 double cubes (L,C,R)and bass module. To that I've added Cambridge Soundworks di-pole rears and a Definitive Technology powered 15" sub.

    Thanks for your input BTW.

    I know the original series AM 5's were 4ohm. (Don't ask how I know :b ) I don't know if they've changed since then or not.
