Yamaha rxv 595 receiver shuts down when volume is increased

The Yamaha I have is not part of the product choices provided.  I have a Yamaha RXV 595 receiver. When I have had parties and turn up the volume, the receiver shuts down.  I have Bose Accoustimass III series and Mission 700-2 speakers.  I do not know if the system gets overheated and that is why it is shutting down.  Or, is it a problem with the speakers versus the receiver.

    They just works like that at low volume obviously. to directly answer your question, I don't know. I'm not a electronics tech. I've just had that problem before. also, if the volume is all the way up never turn it down fast to all off. that will blow the speakers. been there too.

Check it without speaker connection. If the set does not go to protection mode, check all the speakers by connecting one by one at a time and switch the set ON; to find the faulty speaker. If the set goes to protection mode even no speaker connected, check and replace damaged components at its audio output section circuit. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here.

Open the unit and inspect for cold solder connections. Use a non-conductive tool to poke the circuit board for the bad connection. Please keep in mind that when you do this, the unit has to be powered up - be cautious of the live circuit.

Pushing 4 ohm speaker systems

Officially this receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers. But for surround speakers it should not do any harm, because they are not played at full volume. But be sure to set yamaha for 6 ohm speakers.
Using only 4 ohm speakers makes the amplifier work more hard and produce more heat, that's why you can't use it at high volume.

Hello, it is worth checking that there is adequate ventillation around the unit, especially if it is in a cabinet. Also check that there is no dust clogging the vents on the unit. Another cause for overheating is using speakers that require far more power than your receiver can provide, or speakers with an ohm rating that is lower than the amplifier provides. Also, check to see if any wires to the speakers are crossing over as shorting will cause the amplifier to overheat and cut out. Hope this helps.
