It's that ok?
Does anyone have this AV with 4ohm speakers. BTW the speakeres are sony. the fronts and the center are large and the soundrounds are small (3).
It's not designed for that.
It may work just fine.
You may want to manually set all speakers to small. It can only be worse if your speakers are large, and the receiver has problems driving all those 4 ohm speakers.
You may want to listen at reasonable volumes as well. Seems prudent to me to not push the limits.
If you push the thing hard, bad things could happen. Receiver could shut down. In the worst case scenario, it could fail (not saying that's likely, but I maintain that the receiver is not designed for 4 ohm loads.)
Are these regular Sony speakers, or from a HTIB set?
For full disclosure, I should note that some people are less paranoid than I am about using 4 ohm speakers in spite of the receiver not being designed for it (maybe it's designed for it, but they have failed to explain that in the manual...up to you to decide that one.)
