Hi I am new here... just finished running my 7.1 surround sound system (wish i would have asked this before buying and hooking everything up). I have a onkyo nr626 receiver powering  4 emp ew30's (front and back) 2 emp ew 25's (surround) 1 emp ew35 center and 1 rbh s12 sub. I turned up the overall volume on my receiver source 6db and when i have the volume up over 49 and a blue ray has real loud spot (such as huge explosion or rocket launch) right at the peak of sound receiver cuts off -_-  it turns back on no problem. I have banana clips on wires so no stray strands but my receiver gets real hot someone please help (remember im a noob at everything thanks)

I would think the avr is adequate and would look for stray wire touching each other in the back of the avr. At 49 on the avr, you are pushing it pretty hard. Do you use a sub and have all the speakers set to small in the avr? This will help with power management.

These are only 6-ohm speakers and relatively inefficient at only 86db, so will require more power than more efficient and 8-ohm speakers. As noted above, visually check all wire connections again at the back of the AVR as you would't be the first to say there was a loose strand sticking out from the banana plug. Also make sure there is plenty of ventilation ...at least 3-4" on top with an open front and back, otherwise consider adding a fan or two to exhaust the air away from the AVR as the continued heat will cause an early demise.

Keep that up and you will damage your hearing. But here is a hint. If your receiver has an 8 ohm/ 6 ohm switch, set it to 8 ohm. The 6 ohm switch merely reduces amplifier power something like a governor on a truck engine. You will probably get past those peaks better on the 8 ohm setting.
