Hello,


I plan on getting the M&K 850 5.1 speaker system which consists of 4 ohm speakers. I have the Onkyo tx-ds696 and since I'm not that receiver savy I really don't understand the manual specs (Listed Below).


Will my Onkyo have enough power to drive these speakers? I also don't want to hurt these speakers with any distortion. Thanks in advance for the help.


(The ohm sign didn't come out and that's what those boxes are)


All channels: 100 W per channel min. RMS at 8

§Ù, 2 channels driven from 20 Hz

to 20 kHz with no more than

0.08% total harmonic distortion.

125 W min. RMS at 6 §Ù, 2

channels driven from 1 kHz with

no more than 0.1% total

harmonic distortion.

Continuous Power output (DIN) 130 W at 6 §Ù

Maximum Power output (EIAJ) 160 W at 6 §Ù

Dynamic Power Output (Stereo) 2 ¡¿ 230 W at 3 §Ù

2 ¡¿ 170 W at 4 §Ù

2 ¡¿ 115 W at 8 §Ù

It appears that your reciever is rated as stable at 4 ohms so you should be fine. Keep in mind tho, your speaks are 4 ohm nominal, so they could very likely drop lower than that. Check your specs to see with the minimum is or ask your dealer. As long as you don't crank the bejeezus out of it all the time, you should be fine.


If all else fails, contact Onkyo Tech Support and find out.


Good luck
