Question about Audio & Video Receivers
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.
