Good Morning listers.
I am in the process of putting together a whole house audio system. The setup will have
Yamaha RX-V867 receiver (Zone-2 will be used mostly to feed the amp).
Dayton MA1240 multichannel amplifier
Monoprice 8" in ceiling speakers http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
Impedence matching volume controls from monoprice
In wall speaker wires 14/4 and 14/2
CAT6 cables throughout the house (will be terminated at the volume control but not used for anything right now)
I am thinking of connecting the yamaha zone-2 output to the dayton MA1240 amplifier. The monoprice speakers will be mounted throughout the house with IM volume control. The yamaha receiver has an android app control. So i can listen, change sources from my android phone, tablet,etc.
My question is the speakers have 80W Nomimal and 160W Maximum Power. However the dayton amp can provide 40 watts into 8 ohms, 60 watts into 4 ohms (0.09% THD).
Do you think the speaker will have enough volume?. I don't listen normally to very high volumes but occassionaly wife does :-).
I would want the speaker have enough juice and openup the music.
Thanks for any help. Really appreciated.
