HI,in the speaker set up menu on your amp there should be a 6ohm setting but if not don,t worry as it won,t cause any problems.You will have to set the levels for your speakers so they match each other to keep sound right.

HOPE THIS HELPS.
CABLE GUY.

Impedance setting on Yamaha AV Receiver


Hi. You can always use a Receiver with an output impedance that is lower than the speakers input impedance.Problems arise when you try to use a Receiver with a higher output impedance than the Speakers input impedance.

I have onkyo reciever tx-ds898 no sound


Some receivers shut down automatically if a thermal overload is detected or more commonly if speaker impedance is less than specified, i.e, driving a 2 ohm impedance speaker with an output rated for 8 ohms. If you can get the receiver operating long enough, you may see a message indicating why it is shutting down

The impedance of your system is important and connecting the wrong way or wrong impedance can do server damage, also wiring the wrong way round oddly will cancel certain sounds with each other, always check wattage impedance and polarity, good look

No, you don't want to do that. The Ohm output on the amplifier must match the speakers. Run 8 Ohm speakers on 8 Ohm and run all your speakers on the same impedance (Ohms). Your gonna burn your amplifier up if you run different impedances.

Impedance must be matched to have a better sound performance. Althought, it has no problem b/w 4 Ohm and 6 Ohm impedance-it still work but the system may get hotter due to impedance mismatching. You can try and see how the sound goes.

It says protect on the front screen


An amplifier goes into protect when it detects a load with too low an impedance. If it displays protect with no speakers connected at all, the amplifier is damaged. If not, reconnect speakers one at a time (while the amp is off!) to determine the cause of the fault.

It may be as simple as a single strand of copper wire shorting between the positive and negative terminals of a connection.

Reciever turns off


Powering off usually points to issues with speaker setup. You should read pages 42 and 96 of the 606 manual.

Page 42 covers impedence settings. Check your impedence settings for your speakers. The 606 handles speakers from 4 to 16 ohms. There are two impedence settings on the 606 - 4 ohms and 6 ohms. Set to 4 ohms if your speakers are 4 ohms or more but less than 6 ohms. Set to 6 ohms if your speakers sit between 6 and 16 ohms. Incorrect settings can result in the 606 going into power protection after prolonged use or at higher volume.

Page 96 covers testing for unexpected power protection. You should switch off your AV at source and leave for an hour. Disconnect all cables to speakers and other peripherals (TV, DVD et al). After an hour turn on AV and turn volume to MAX, If the AV remains on, turn down volume to min, switch off AV and reconnect all devices. Make sure the speaker cables are properly connected and that no bare wiring is exposed.

Once you have done this switch on the AV and turn to volume to MAX. If the AV stays on then problem solved. If the AV switches off then you should contact your supplier.

Do all speakers need to have the same impedance? (Protect mode)


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.
