The amp is set up to run 2 sets of speakers...2 sets of connectors. You can shut them down from the front of the amp.

To be honest....i don't think the amp likes 4 ohm loads.

At this point...either i return the speakers, or get an amp that can handle the 4 ohm load...at volume!

Wait, do you have a second set that you're trying to power with the M80s?

That could be either parallel or series. If you set it to A+B and there's no B does sound still come out of A? If yes, then it is parallel, and impedance will be lower than either speaker. If no, then it is series, and loads will be added together.

Thanks guys..but i'm just running the M80's on this amp nothing more. I Tried to find info on this amp..All i got was 165 watts at 8 Ohms. Ran thru a bunch of stuff.....what i did find was 1 guy who said...dose NOT work for 4 ohm stuff.

Which now i beleive 100%.
So either i send them back, or find an Adcom 555 to power them.
In any case NOT what i really wanted.

Play them at low volumes and put your ear up to each driver to make sure each of them is working. I know of at least one case on here who had a pair of M22's that would shut down a receiver at a certain point which was caused by a defective woofer. After the woofer was replaced, no more protect mode.

You might as well give Axiom a call and explain your problem, they might have an idea. They're answering calls on the weekend.

Well i can try that. I already talked to Axiom...they could not find any info on this amp. no problem with sending them back, if i want to. I just have a bad feeling this amp will not do 4 ohm loads..the one guy put it point blank pretty much...don't try to run a 4 ohm load on this amp..NOT going to work. So at this point..i beleive the guy.

The question now is do i spend another 500 bucks or so to find out if these speakers really work or they don't....LOL

I don't know why anyone is surprised by an Onkyo shutting down with the M80s. Ether buy a different amp or get the M60s. I know it has to suck but it is what it is.
