The 1909 doesn't know what the impedance of the speakers it's connected to is

Can you imagine if they did?
Me <-- turns receiver on, leans back to relax and listen to the music
receiver <-- " Hey putz, turn me down!! Thats a 4Ohm load. I'm getting hot here..."

Don't forget to try an M60 as a center before you send one set back.

Dave, your friend is correct at 3.4 ohms if the two parallel impedances are 6 and 8 ohms; David is correct at 2.67 ohms if the yatt, yatta, yatta, 1/4+1/8=1/X, 3/8=1/X, X=8/3, or 2.67 ohms. That's the math, but we really don't know what the actual real world result will be at any instant, since that depends on what the impedances of the two speakers would be at the frequency being played at that instant and we have no M60 impedance curve available, apparently.
Having said all that, blah, blah, blah, allow)the current caused overheating to build up, again the protective circuits would cause shut down without permanent damage.


Everything that guy said is Bull$^!+ ! Math? We don't need no stink'en Math.
The key is better speaker wire, that will fix all your concerns. ;\)

Yo Dave, you posted impressions yet? I seem to have missed that thread...

Loc: It's all about the location.
Dave has either hit "Sonic Nirvana" or he opened the M80 box from the wrong end, trapped underneath..."I've fallen, and I can't get up!"

Someone get to him before he gnaws his arm off!!
