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.

What is the omhs of a cerwin vega avs sat4 surround speaker


According the the Cerwin Vega manual for this model and others, all speakers in the system are rated at 8ohms. This includes the Sat4 Surround Speaker and all other channels.
More information can be found at Cerwin-Vega's service and support page at: http://www.cerwinvega.com/product-manuals.html
You can also call them for information as well.

Overloads with volume a third od the way up,i have 2 12 inch cerwin vegas hooked to it


fan_of_tony,
There is not much info in your question to properly answer it but here are a few things.

1) The VSX-D307 is a home receiver that is rated for no less than a 4 ohm load. If you have two 12" 4 ohm CV subs on the same channel and they are in parallel, that would create a 1.7 ohm load which would easily cause the problem.

2) If you have one on each channel connected along with speakers that are for you mids and highs, the way they are connected could be reducing the resistance load the amp will see which would easily cause the problem.

3) If you have one on each channel and no other speakers the problem would be simply that your speakers can use more power than the amp can produce. Thus you are able to raise the volume of the amp passed it's maximum output which would cause the amp to clip and the amp will go into overload protection.

4) Your receiver has an 8 ohm rated amp. Which means it can run at 4 ohms but the amp will produce more power at lower volumes on the knob setting and will max out at lower levels than if you were using a 8 ohm speakers.

In short, CV's can use a lot of power and your receiver, regardless of advertised power levels, cannot give the speakers what you are looking for in sound levels. Buy a larger dedicated amp for the CV's as the clipping from your Pioneer receiver is doing damage to your CV's. Your speaker's can hear the clipping before your ears can so damage will start to occur before your ears can hear the clipping.

Poping sound coming from pioneer amp


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.
