    On the back it says compatible with 8ohms. What does this mean? Thanks

    It means that your receiver should be set to 8 ohms, as is pretty much standard.

    Ohms are a measurement of the electrical resistance (or stress) that a speaker will put on an amplifier. 8 Ohms is a common rating for speakers and the typical rating for an amplifier. Some amps/receivers have an Ohms switch that you can set to match your speakers. I would wager that your receiver is rated to drive an 8 Ohm load but you can check the back panel to be sure. If you do have an Ohms switch, set it at 8 to drive the MiniMonitors.

    Thanks for the info guys. I just picked up a new Rotel RMB-1066 and bridged it too 3x150W into 8 Ohms. Before I bought the AMP I ask 3 different salesmen at three different stores about driving my speakers with the AMP bridged and all said this would be no problem. I even fired of an e-mail to Rotel and got what has too be the most pathetic answer ever. I'll post that in a different thread.
