I just want to ensure I'm not putting my new speakers in danger of being damaged.
I have 2 JBL Control 28's (professional grade contractor speakers) connected to my Pioner VSX-521K receiver. The receiver is rated at 110 watts per channel at 8 ohms. The 2 JBL speakers are rated at 175W continuous power at 8 ohms.
While the receiver is really designed for 5.1, I only have these 2 speakers connected. I don't hear any distortion or clipping. I'm just worried I might be doing long term damage -- not sure.
On a side note, I would really like a little more bass out of these. It may just be because they're underpowered a bit. They have 8" woofers so I figured they'd have considerable bass.
