Will a 4 & 8 ohm setup work together?

    This week I will purchase a Anthem PVA-7 multi-channel amp. I'm selling off my audio system to take my home theater to the next level. I want to use my speakers from my audio system (Thiel 3.5) and use them as my front speakers on my home theater. My existing fronts (B&W 602 S2) will go to my rear surround. Used as well are my B&W ceiling mount, B&W front center & B&W sub. All the B&W speakers are 8 ohm and the Thiel 3.5's are 4 ohm. Note that my B&W are bi-wired and the Thiel's are not. I feel this Anthem will more than power the Thiel's. Does anyone see anything wrong with this setup?

    Also, suggestions on speaker cable so I take full advantage of this amp?

    Thanks a bunch

    As long as the amp can handle a 4-ohm load (and I assume it will, or you would not have considered it) you’ll be fine.
