    I have a Harman/Kardon AVR-225 recievers and am pushing about 30W through the 50W switched on the back of this recievers... has anyone found this dangerous to do? It is powering 2 EQ's which are only 2 ch. and take up 30W together... anyone see any damage in this or you guys think it is OK?

    if you're only using 60% of it's rated capacity, i can't imagine any problem with it.

    You won't have any problem with that. Things like EQs and powered FM antennas that run off a little block-type transformer don't take much juice at all.

    My current setup has an EQ (15 watts) and a powered FM antenna (5 watts) plugged into the receiver. Been that way for years. No problems at all.

    I wouldn't plug any kind of amplifier in there. Other than that, you're good to go. [​IMG]
