    Hello, this is my first post after a few years of on and off lurking...

    I recently received a set of 6 hand-me-down Infinity speakers. They don't have any kind of spec sheets, but here are the model numbers:

    Front: RS 5000
    Center: Video 1
    Surround: Reference EL

    My question is two-fold. First, does anybody know what the impedance of these speakers is? My Pioneer receiver has settings for 8 ohm and 6 ohm or less speakers and I don't know which one I should choose.

    The second part of the question is, if I can't figure out what the impedance is, which setting on my receiver should I use? Am I going to do damage to either the amp or the speakers by choosing one or the other?

    Any help anybody could offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    Jason,
    I used to own a Video 1, it was 8 ohm's
    and i'm pretty sure the RS's & Ref EL's were also 8 ohm's
    I would set the receiver at 8 ohm
