Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Recently I bought an old pioneer system without speakers. The amplifier is an 'a-z370'. I believe it is a 4 channel 300w amplifier but not knowing anything about systems or speakers this means nothing to me (sorry for my ignorance!!). As I have purchased an old system I am only looking to purchase either quality used speakers or inexpensive new that will do justice to my system.
I have been told the watts is less important than the ohms? I am unsure what the ohms is for my system??
ANY help or advise would be appreciated!
You can use any wattage speakers as long as they are not less than the watts from your amp. However you can still use lower wattage speakers as long as you don't turn up the volume full or two loud! Otherwise your damage the speaker.
HOWEVER you must get the ohms matched up right. You must never connect any speaker with a low Ohm to a high rated amp. Or you will blow the output stage transistors or IC.
Most Amps are 8 ohms, so you could connect an 8 or 16 etc, but not a 4 ohm.

Tips for a great answer:
get another basic mono stereo amplifier to power the centre speaker on its own however
if your main amplifier does not have a pre out connector for a centre speaker
you will have to change the volume independently on both amplifiers
