Whitrashtruk,
Your M-91 has a 8 ohm rated amp. Your CV's are 4 ohm speakers. When your reduce the resistance the amp see's it requires the amp to work harder and will max out at much lower volume knob levels.

Simply put, you have big speakers that require big power. You receiver is not capable of providing the big power you need and will only cause damage to your speakers and receiver.

Buy a larger dedicated amp for your speakers as you will never hear the full potential of your CV's from any receiver. Both great components; just not a good match for each other.

I have a Pioneer VSX 823 - K, and when I hook up my Klipsch HG-12 300 watt subwoofer to it, the receiver is prone to overheating or just shutting off with too much bass. Is there a fix to this?


This is receiver thermal going in protect issue and has no bearing to your sub, The sub has its own power amp and not supplied by the receiver. Thermal module may be bad. See a tech.

Running two cerwin vega ntense 252's off a pyle pro pta3000 amp and it sounds extremely muddy. Lines signals are clipping and stressing the sound. What's the best fix with still getting a high volume...


I wonder if all the clipping and stressing hasn't taken out the tweeters. They hate DC and square waves. Turn the gain down so you don't have clipping and stressing.

I am buying a pioneer vsx-d414 receiver and want to no if it will drive my cerwin vega e-712 speakersv says for receivers rated 8ohms or lower.. , just currious


Yes the Pioneer will drive the Cerwin Vega speakers. The Pioneer requires at least 8 ohm speakers and if the Cerwin Vega speakers are 8 ohms, it won't be ******* the receiver.

The speakers you have are high wattage, so the Pioneer may not be able to get the most out of them, but it should be pretty good.

It is always good to have speakers rated at a higher wattage than the receiver, that way the receiver will not fry the speakers. No matter what the wattage of a speaker, it will not pull more power out of an amplifier than the amplifier is capable of delivering. Some people have a mis-conception that if a speaker is higher rated that it will blow up the amp, this is just not true. Speakers do not pull power from an amp, they only put out as much power as the amp is pushing into them. But you can blow up an amp by driving it too hard for too long of time. They just get too hot and the heat stresses the amp circuit after a while.

I hope this helps.

So impressed that I took a 1080 that two previous techs had butchered and they fixed it to like new specs.512-451-0408 is their #. They go out of their way to help those of us that are not well versed in techspeak. Both units sound superb with the big 15 inch Cerwin Vega speakers!!!
