    I currently have the center speaker ,and I am seriously thinking about getting the rest of the setup.I have an Onkyo TXSR-600 reciever.The listening room is appprox 20X12
    .Do I have enough reciever to properly run this set?? I noticed that the front speakers are 4 ohm and the rears are 8.Since this is a nice reciever ,but not real high end,want to make sure I have enough to run the speakers properly.

    thanks

    Is my question that stupid???/ Or did I offend everyone already??? [​IMG] I am usually just a thread killer.[​IMG] Did go and talk to the guys at the audio shop,and they said I should be OK with the mid range Onkyo.

    The Onkyo should be ok to drive those speakers, you should very impressed with quality you will get.

    I talked to Onkyo before I bought my 750 setup and they stated that I should NOT use their systems as they don't support 4 ohm. It was one of the main reasons I moved to my Denon. Now, Denon doesn't explicitly state that they support 4ohm, either. But when I talked to them (and M&K) they were very positive in their claims that I would have no issues with the 4ohm.
    They were right!

    Greg, I run an old Yamaha 2092 receiver with 4 ohm M&K S85s all the way around, and have absolutely no problems. The Yamaha has a 4 ohm/8 ohm selector switch on the rear panel though.

    I am already running a 750 center channel,with no problems yet.Would adding the other 2 fronts ,as the rears are 8's,be ok,I would think.What did Onkyo say for the reason not to use the low ohm speakers?

    I looked for the original email from them - but cause my company has a ridiculously restrictive email retention policy, it's long gone. Basically, they don't support low-impendence speakers and they would run the receiver too hard. I am sure others will disagree about why not to do it, I am just relaying what Onkyo told me.

    I dug out the spec sheet for the AR 510's im running in front now,they are 4 ohm speakers,have had them since 91 or so.Have used 2 JVC recievers and the Onkyo with them .If they havent hurt anything I guess the M&K's wont?
