You would be much better served going up to the next higher model (either 1612 or 1613) both of which use Audyssey MultEQ to EQ the speakers, as well as returning the Bose speakers and replacing them with the Energy Take 5.1 Classic. Review post #2 in each of the XX12 and XX13 Owner's threads linked in my sig to see the difference between the models.

The 1312 and 1513 are pretty much the same receiver. They will work with the AM5 equally well. The biggest difference between the two is that the 1513 has 1 HDMI input on the front and 3 on back while the 1312 has all 4 HDMI inputs on the back. Power and performance is the same.

Like JD said you should upgrade to the 1612 or 1613 for Audyssey MultEQ calibration.

You Bose are 8 ohm speakers which are the easiest to power. Pretty much any receiver will work with them.

4 ohm speakers are the toughest to drive and you'd need a more capable receiver with a better power supply and high current amps.

Given a choice of only the 1312 or 1513, then get the newer 1513 as it will allow HDMI Standby pass through to the TV when the AVR is off if there are times you don't want to use the surround speakers (eg. listening to sports or news).

You don't set the speaker impedance rather it varies based on the frequency of the audio; however, Denon AVRs are designed to work with 6-16 ohm speakers without issue, and can power 4-ohm speakers at lower volumes only.
