Hi guys

I am having an urge to add rear speakers for my YHT-S401 and i wanted to use the rear speakers (or front speakers if better) from an old Panasonic SA-PT170 DVD home theatre system. But I am not sure if it can be used as the connectors for the rear speakers in yht-s401 says 'speaker impedance 6 ohm' and the pt170 rear speakers says 5 ohm!!

Is it okay to still use them. I'm really a noob when it comes technical audio terminology!

Thx in advance guys!

Thx for replying, mate! So the six impedance is the max the receiver would properly handle, am I correct??

Speakers vary impedance depending on frequency, so that 5 ohm speaker might be 30 ohms at one frequency and 3 ohms at another.  This is common and nothing too worry about.  The Yamaha will handle it fine.
