I got this receiver, I hooked up my Klipsch pro media satellites to it, so far I don't seem to have any problems. I looked up the Pro media satellitesĀ and from what I can tell they are 4 Ohms. Is it possible I'm going to have a problem with the receiver because they don't have enough Ohms? Ā It says on the Sony specs page below that it hasĀ 4 Ohm/8 Ohm Switching (6 Ohm)

Probably not. You could encounter overheating at high volume levels so just keep things at normal levels.

Ok, sounds good. Ā So far I have only connected 2 of them, would it be more of an issue if I hooked up more of the Klipsch Satellites or pretty much be ok except for very high volumes?

It is high volume that will bring out any potential problems. Feel the top of the receiver from time to time. It should be warm but no hot. It it gets hot, cut the volume.
