One way to connect your ceiling speakers is to have a 70V line system.

These would mean installing a step up transformer and individual

transformer on each.


there is also an option of having a volume control on each speaker

SOURCE: can I mix 6 and 8 ohm speakers?

Most Yamaha HTR's are high current receivers so setting the receiver to 8 ohms and running the 6 ohm speakers shouldn't be a huge problem. I wouldn't crank the volume though if i were you but at a decent level you should be fine.

SOURCE: 4 ohm speakers with 8 ohm receivers

Please check with the manual of your receiver whether it is capable of running 4 ohm speakers.

if yes, then please go ahead, you will not loose any Sound quality. Sound quality will depend a lot on the performace of the speaker as well as the frequency range it can deliver.

If no, please do not connect. Though, you might be able to play and listen to the music, but it will overload your receiver!!

If you are not sure, please let me know the brand and model of your receiver and I can check for you.

SOURCE: Can I install 4 6 ohms speakers on an 8 ohms a/v

Best Answer - Chosen by Voters An ohm is a unit of electrical resistance. You can think of it as your speaker will impede or pull 8 ohms from the amplifier that is powering it.

8 ohms is less resistance than 4ohms. So a 4 ohm speaker would require more juice than your 8 ohm.

If this is the only speaker, then that's all the resistance you have to worry about handling. If you had two of these speakers wired in parallel, then the total impedence would be up to be 4 ohms, because each speaker actually reduces the resistance in the circuit...so 8 ohms + 8 ohms = 4 ohms.

You use this information to make sure your amplifier is powerful enough for the speakers. If the speakers have too much resistance, they'll fry your amp.

Here's a good sentence to help explain, but I recommend reading the article I linked in sources...

"An amplifier designed to put out 100 watts into 8 ohms will put out 200 watts into 4 ohms. Two 8 ohms speakers wired in parallel (4 ohms total) would cause the amplifer to produce 200 watts." Source(s): http://www.marktaw.com/recording/Electro…

Can I connect two 4 ohm speakers to make it play on single 8 ohm speaker channel on a receiver


Yes, two 4 ohm speakers wired in series will present an 8 ohm load, though even with matched speakers they are likely to produce different volume levels.

It is probable the receiver will be quite happy using a single 4 ohm speaker if only modest volume levels are used. Many popular hi-fi amps quote power outputs for both 4 and 8 ohm indicating either could be used.

I have yamaha htr-5990 it only has 6 ohms to 8 ohms I just bought some Bose 401 there 4 ohms will this work or will it wreck receiver or sound bad


If you want blown output transistors then connect your 4 ohm speakers. Swap them for some 6 to 8 ohms. You can go higher with ohms, say 16 ohms, but NEVER lower than rated.

Speakers wont work on the htr-3063....worked 10 minutes before on the old receiver


check to see what ohm your speakers are using. I know the 3063 supports both 6 and 8 ohm but it is defaulted at 8.

Can I mix 6 and 8 ohm speakers?


I would not suggest mixing. Use either 6 or 8 only but i highly suggest not mixing unless it gives the option to set a certain input for a certain Ohm. If you mix your either going to mess up a speaker or the receiver itself.
