4ohms mixed with 8ohm speakers?
If I was to replace my Klipsch inwall THX fronts KL-7800 THX speakers which are 8ohms, with Triad Silver/4LCR inwall speakers which are 4ohms, how would they mix with the rest of my Klipsch ceiling speakers which are also 8ohms? I have an 11.2 setup.
My AVR is the Integra 70.4 which I also use with a separate Integra amp DTA 70.1
My Integra AVR 70.4 only has two settings 4 or 6 ohms. Currently its set to 6ohms for all the Klipsch speakers.
I am only powering the two rear channels from the AVR, the rest are powered from the separate amp. I do see on the rear of the amp there is also a switch to set it to 4 ohms or 6ohms.
So the question is, can I mix your three Silver/4LCR 4ohm speakers up front safely with the rest of my Klipsch 8ohm surround speakers?
If so how do I setup the AVR and the separate power amp?
Do they both get set to 4ohms?
