First post.

I have a Marantz 6005 which is currently powering:
Magnepan MMG's in the front
Magenpan MMG C center channel
And Audio Engine P4's in the back

Am I near the limitations of this amp? I sure hope not.

I want to buy one maybe two Bic VK-12 subs.

Tell me if I am overloading this.

You mean Marantz SR 6005, right?

VK12s are powered subs - they put no power load on the AVR at all.

Thanks for the reply.

Few...that is a relief about the powered subs.

Do you think I would be overloading it if I changed the rear P4's to side speakers and replaced them with two more Maggie MMGs?

At average volume levels (ie. -30db), the AVR shouldn't have any issues with the change, however, will likely shut down at louder volume levels.
