question for the genius's here...


I have the Yamaha RX-V465 receiver, and can select between 6 or 8 ohms minimum.


I have the Yamaha NS-IW470 in-wall speakers, they are 6 ohm.

I'm looking at the NS-C310 Center Channel, which is 6 ohm.


The problem is that I want the NS-IW960 in-wall speakers, which are 8 ohm. There is the 6 ohm option with the NS-IW760, but the 960 has kevlar woofers, and isn't that much more expensive. I'm wanting to know if i have my receiver set to 6 ohms if the 8 ohm speaker will still work without causing any problems.


Thanks!

No problem at all.

Don't worry about it at all. Use the 8-ohm setting on the AVR regardless of whether your speakers are 6-ohm or 8-ohm.


Make sure it is correctly ventilated. Put your hand on it when running it hard to make sure it isn't overheating but Yamaha AVRs run cool.
