I have conventional drivers rated at 4 ohms. They dip somewhat lower than that. My AVR is a 4520ci which could drive them. But they are DIY with active crossovers so I must use separate amps....

I would never get speakers whose midwoofer was 3" in diameter. Even 5.25" driver's are often strained at 80Hz or even 100Hz.

Yes, there are reasons to have separates, there are also AVRs that cannot handle 4 ohm loads. Its the inference that all AVRs cannot handle 4 ohm loads or that they are poor in general.
