Hi All - hope someone who is knowledgeable can help me here.

I have some older (but good condition) B&W DM303 speakers (rated 8ohms, 100 W max - http://www.hifi-review.com/specs/151043-b-w-dm303.html) and a newer Denon AVR-X250BT running 1 ch - claims to have "Power Output (6 ohm, 1 kHz, 1% 1ch Drive) - 130 W" (https://www.denon.com/en-gb/shop/avreceiver/avrx250bt).

At first the protection mode would enable after out 30-60 seconds of play time, so as per the manual I double checked the speaker wires, cleaned them up and now seems to be doing better, but still running into protection mode. This time I think it may be related to driving at higher volume which maybe means that the amp is not driving enough power or the speakers can't handle what it's driving.

I have a little bit of knowledge things, but mostly a beginner - would appreciate any insight from the experts here.

Thanks!
