Hi,

A series parallel network of four (4) 60 watts speakers would give you the same ohmage/impedance but with 240 watts capacity. Just two in parallel would give you half the ohmage/impedance but 120watts capacity or two in series would give you double the ohmage/impedance with again 120watts capacity.

Incidentally, if you bridge the power amp, you double the amp's output but only mono.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

If what you say is true, you should be fine.
Where you get into trouble is having an amp of higher power than your speakers. That means you will likely blow your speakers.

Pioneer vsx-454


Any speaker that can handle 100 watts or more. This receiver is rated for 100 watts per channel into an 8 ohm speaker. If the speaker is less than that, it will make the amplifier work harder and heat up faster.

Pioneer VSX 1020K - Zone 2 Setup


I referred to a similar zone 2 arrangement for a Yamaha receiver. It shows a separate amplifier and notes that only analog signals are sent to zone 2. The analog output from a source must be connected to the analog input on your Pioneer unit for zone 2 to work. Your outdoor music environment will be limited to left and right front speakers and...alas...no surround

What kind of speaker watts should be ok to marantz pm74d?..i want to know to make the sounds make better...


Hi,to know what watts to use for marantz pm74d, first you will need to know the watts of marantz pm74d for you to be able to know the watts of the speaker you will want to use for marantz pm74d.

You make sure the watts of the marantz pm74d you want to use for the speakers are not bigger the watt of the marantz pm74d,

eg, marantz pm74d----150 watts
speakers depending on the numbers of speakers your using 60 watts.

So if you are using one speaker of 60 watts and your using more than one, add all speaker watts and divide the speaker watts by the marantz pm74d watts, the weight on the marantz pm74d will be too much to handle too much speakers.

Make sure the marantz pm74d watts is high enough to carry the speaker you want to use.It helps you determine the quality of sound you want to hear..

Thanks for using fixya........

Have I got to many watts for the amp, I have two 120w front,indepented sub,rear 100w,back two 40w


Hello,
Do you know how much your amp is rated for? Usually what happens when your amplifier is too under powerd to drive your speakers is that it just sounds really bad. It is usually a good idea to have more power than what your speakers require, so in your case your looking for a minimum of 260W which is really not that much.

Avr 3802 can i hook up 2 sets of front speakers


well depending on the wattage of the speakers your trying to hook up to the amp if they exeed the maximum wattage then theres a chance u *could* blow a fuse nothing more then that, a fuse protects more expsinsive devices in ur amp, an if ur system keeps blowing fuses after doing that add up the watts 2 all ur speakers,
and remove the less needed
Hope you find this usfull

Denon AVR-2307 Protection Circuit Activated permenantly


The speakers are 4 ohm speakers, a guy on another chat site sent me a link to the impedance curves http://www.audioholics.com/reviews/s...t-v2-fs/page-4

He agreed to that there was a mismatch as the unit has plenty of fresh air around it, plus all the speaker cables have been tested and installed correctly.

So, off to the store where I got it from tomorrow.
