Question about Sony STR-DE635 Receiver
I've had this receiver for about 7 years, still works fine. However it was purchase as a component system and a few of the speakers crapped out. So I purchased a set of sony 5 1/4 side speakers and a sony 70w rms 100w amped sub as replacements. All seems to be working well and sounds great but the receiver gets a little hotter then it use too, not hot enough to burn your hand but close. Is this something I should worry about?
Hello! Yes, you need to worry when a Sony gets hot!! You probably have replaced factory 8 ohm speakers with 4 ohm speakers. Look on the back of your new speakers and see what they are. Then look at the rear of your receiver by the speaker terminals and there will be a sentence like "8 Ohm minimum per channel". If your Sony says " 8 ohms " you need to use 8 ohm speakers.
Also, are you a using low level signal ( audio out ) to drive your sub or are you using high level ( speaker line )??? I'd use low level. Good luck!!
