Question about Onkyo TX-SR505 Receiver
I am hooking 6 speakers up to this receiver as follows.
Front: Bose Acoutimass 3 series IV impedance between 4-8 ohms per Bose CS No set impedance
Center: Bose V10: 6 ohms
Rear: three ceiling installed speakers all 8 ohms. (1 KLH, 2 Insignia)
Onkyo manual says it can operate speakers between 6-15 ohms.
Onkyo Customer Support (if that's what you call them), told me all the speaker must have the same impedance? If they are not the receiver will go into protect mode? This does not sound right to me!
Before I send this thing back AGAIN (long boring story) can anyone help?
Amplifiers sometimes like to have "balanced loads" on them, and this may be the case with your unit, meaning yes, all the impedances should match.
Judging by the impedance numbers you provided, you should be all set. You really want to avoid having something like 2 ohms on the left side and 8 ohms on the right side - grossly imbalanced. I don't see any problems with what you're going to run.
