asking for a friend who just picked up a panasonic receiver hoping to run his old JBL mains, which are 4 ohm. suffice it to say that it didn't work...overloaded the amps. i think he's getting disgruntled and even brought up the bose 3-2-1 system this morning...though i doubt he'd actually do it...especially at that price. he's more likely to buy a cheap sat/sub system. anyway, i'm trying to get him to be patient since his speakers sound like they are decent, plus he has decent surrounds, but i'm not having any luck finding a low priced $250-$400 receiver that will handle a 4 ohm load. he has JBL N24 surrounds and an 8 ohm JBL center, should i just tell him to buy new mains, or is there a receiver that will handle the load that he can trade his panasonic for? i'll be continuing my search, just hoped you guys might know something i don't.
