I guess I am a little confused about all the power rating per channel stuff. The v671 has the following specs listed:
Rated Output Power (1kHz, 1ch driven) 125W (8ohms, 0.9% THD)
Rated Output Power (1kHz, 2ch driven) 105W (8ohms, 0.9% THD)
Rated Output Power (20Hz-20kHz, 2ch driven) 90W (8ohms, 0.09% THD)
What is this saying?
Thank you for your help,
You'll be fine with them. I'm running a 7.1 w/presence speaker setup now. I've got Boston VRS 90 micros for the rear, a micro 90 for the center, a pair of PSB 500 Century for the fronts and Boston micro 90s as my presence speakers.
The Bostons are rated at 15-125 watts at 100-20,000Hz
The PSBs are 10-150 watts at 50-20,000Hz
Even though the specs on those Quintets show..."50 watts (200 peak)" you'll be fine unless you just really like the sound maxed out. Especially if you're running a 5.1 instead of a 6.1 or 7.1 setup.
