When in bridged mode. I wanted to order the Axiom M80 towers. They are 4 ohm speakers.

Do any PA2000/4000 owners have 4 ohm speakers running in bridged mode? Thanks.

HK website in the FAQ's it states the receivers should handle most 4 ohm speaker loads, so that means your PA4000 should also. BTW, I just bought a HK 525 & Pa 4000 and will try 4 ohm for the many whole house speakers I have planned, but this will not be for a few months, as house is being built.

Joseph, it would be "FAR" better to vertically Bi-amp than to bridge and run at 4 ohms.

The M80s look to be biampable. Running a bridged amp at 4 ohms is always a bad idea, both for distortion and difficulty for the amp.

Just get a y-connector for each pre out and run it into the amp, then run speaker cables to the speaker from each set of outputs.

Problem solved.
