    The Jamo E805s are rated 4-8 ohms and states it on the back of them. Does this mean that the receiver will drive the speakers at 4, 6, or 8 ohms? What ohms will the receiver drive the speaker at? Hoping either 6 or 8 since 4 is pushing the receiver...LMK. Thanks!!![​IMG]

    Impedance is frequency dependant, so there isn't a simple answer to the qestion. 4-8 means, they are likely 4 Ohm nominal, something along the lines of Paradigm Studios, which say 8 Ohm "compatible", because they do drop fairly low (2.8 Ohms or something similar). I checked around, and most websites list those speakers as 4 Ohm. They also seem to have a low sensitivity of 86dB. You're going to want plenty of power to drive them most likely, depending on your room.
