Hi guys,

My receiver supports both 6 and 8 ohms. Assuming I bought a main speaker that is at 6 ohms and a center speaker that is at 4 ohms. Will there be any issues like destroying the 4 ohms speaker or the receiver? Or will it just be harder for my receiver to drive the center speaker?

Thanks.

Neil

One 4 Ohm speaker should be no problem, though it WILL draw more current. Is this still the Yammie 1400 (shown in your history)? I wouldn't worry about it. I've run 3 4 Ohm speakers on my Marantz 8300 for hours and did not have any issues unless I was pushing it to excessive levels.

Yep, It's still the 1400 yammie :)
Btw, looks like I'm gonna get a Rockets 550 and the 200 center next year. :) This is why I asked about the 4 ohms.
