They say 8ohms but I read that they dip below 4 quite a lot. So I've been running my 818 at 4 ohms instead of 6. What do you do? What are you using to power your center channel? And just in general how does it sound now? What size is your room and do you have any pics of your your new setup?
I'd love to hear that. Congrats on your new toys.
Sorry for the really late reply Bear I've been out of town on vacation Thank you now my 683 are getting the power they need and yes they do dip below 4 ohms quite a lot that's why I decided to get Emotiva XPA-1's. My set up is 2 Emotiva XPA-1's powering the front left and right B&W 683's,Emotiva XPA-5 powering my center B&W HTM61,685 Surrounds & 686 Rears & UPA-7 powering B&W 686 front Heights and Yamaha rear Heights love the set up sounds amazing for music and movies my room is not that big is 12'x16'x9 my focus was clarity and my current set up delivers that, and also I do watch movies and listen to music pretty loud most of the time. I will post a pic of my set up soon.
