Unfortunately when I upgraded my receiver to a rxv3000, I gave my rxv595 to my father in law. This was back in October right before I stumbled upon svs. Now, the only spare receiver I have is a Pioneer vsx-604s which I bought back in 95. I am wondering if this will be enough to power a svs or even a svs +. Here is what the pioneer manual says as far as power goes: " front........... 110 W + 110 W (1kHz, .8% THD, 8 ohms)" The thing is, back when I used this receiver I couldn't use speaker wire that was larger than 18 guage. When I did, the display on the receiver would say "overload" and shut itself off, even at moderate volumes. I could crank to my hearts content with 18 guage, but not 16. I'm worried that this means that this receiver will in no way be able to power an svs even though they are so sensitive. I am hoping for good news, because I already have 400 dollars saved up so I am getting ever closer to bass nirvana.
