Hi,

Cant wait to receive my speakers. Almost done
setting up my home theatre

Can anyone tell me if I need to find
a 4 ohm capable amp to drive the M80ti's
or will a "160 W/Ch, Continues 6 ohm" rating
do the trick?

Also should i consider a seperate power amp
for the two front towers? My room is fairly
large and open plan.

Do they work as a post reciever amp? Do you
just slot them in?

Any recommendations on a receiver and power
amp?

This is a quote for axioms webpage,

(Note: the M80ti tower's impedance is
4 ohms. Big rooms call for a separate
power amplifier for the M80ti towers.
An A/V receiver rated to drive 4-ohm loads
without overheating or shutting down is
recommended. Call Axiom for recommended
receivers or amplifiers that will drive
the 4-ohm M80s.)

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks

Leeroy, welcome. You've ordered an excellent setup. As far as the receiver, the numbers you quoted don't establish the suitability and you should try it(if you mean that you already have it)when you get your speakers. Don't assume that there'll be a problem; nobody can tell you what receiver you need or if you need so much power(unlikely)that you'd need a separate amplifier. Many excellent receivers from companies such as Denon, HK, Onkyo, Pioneer and Yamaha should be fine in nearly all circumstances.

Enjoy the music, not the equipment.

Hi John, Thanks for the reply.

I dont have an amp as yet. Its the last
thing on my shopping list. Can I basically just
get any top end amp that has no mention of its power
rating for driving 4 ohm speakers and be ok?

Do you know if the denon's room eq setup is any
different than any other miked room calibration like
yamahas or onkyo's?

Denons sounds more complicated.

If you state a max spend, you'll get a lot more specific recomendations for electronics.

Personally, I'd go seperates if you can swing it.

Leeroy, I am running an Epic/80 and EP-600 from a set of Emotivas from AV123 - it is outstanding.

Also - drop Axiom a line, the new digital gear looks pretty promising.

Great system! Welcome!

I would look at AV123 Emotiva "Big Dogs" and Outlaw 990 Pre/Pro with Outlaw 7700 Amp to start.

4PiMan beat me to the Emotivas. If I could afford them (or got WAF), I would have the "Big Dogs"

Others will jump in with Rotel, Nad, Odessey,etc. The list of good choices goes on and on.

This is too funny. I am 4PiMan at home, and craigsub at my office. If you see either answer the other, call 911, ok ? It means I finally snapped.

Good call on the Outlaw stuff, too.
