4 ohm speakers for 8 ohm impedence on receiver (HT)

Hi,
I just received an awesome receiver to replace my broken one. It is a sony STR-DE545. My speakers from my old receiver are from a htib sony from 2001. Link

They are rated 4 ohm 100w speakers but the receiver is rated at 100w and 8 ohm per channel on center and rear speakers. I do not know what i can do. I have extra speakers that i can series with the speakers to get 8 ohm but then it gets cluttered. Is there anything you guys can offer?

    hmm well good thing you told me that. This other site told me that it would be able to handle the 4 ohm speakers as long as i didnt turn them to theater levels.

Str-de545 sony not putting out sound to rear speakers


From page 46 (Troubleshooting)-

No sound or only a very low-level sound is heard from the rear speakers.

>>> Make sure the sound field function is on (press SOUND FIELD - MODE).

>>> Select a sound field containing the word "cinema" or "virtual" (see pages 28-30).

>>> Adjust the speaker volume (see page 19).

>>> Make sure the rear speaker size parameter is set to either SMALL or LARGE (see page 17).

Sony str de545 5.1


Make sure the subwoofer is set to On in the setup menu. Should be able to access this setting from the front panel, using the click wheel and the left/right buttons above the wheel. Push the setup button to get to the right menu. Set subwoofer to 'on' and speaker size to 'small'. This receiver has a fixed crossover, so make sure to turn the crossover setting on the subwoofer to the maximum setting (highest frequency) to ensure no signal is lost.

Protect keeps coming on


Hi;
I used to get this when my speaker wires were touching each other and my 3yr old cranks the volume to Max. Check your Speaker connections you might want to take it all out and redo. Hope this helps.

You should have access to receiver's format from remote or front panel. If the unit was moved around a lot and for a long period, the micro-processor may have locked due to ambient static electricity. Try unplugging unit for seversl hours, then re-try
