    Hello,

    My fronts are 8ohms and my centres and rears are 6ohm. Which should I set my amp up for 6 or 8?

    Thank's :)

    Dino.

    I'd set the amp to the 6 ohm setting...it may limit your maximum loudness a little,but should the suit the majority of your speakers better,and with less likelihood of running the amp too hard.

    Thank you Alex :clap:

    No chance of damaging the speakers at the front if set to 6 ohms though is there Alex?

    None at all. There have been a good few threads on this in the last few weeks in this and the amps forum so shouldn't be hard to find if you want to read up on the subject (look for Ohms and impedence as titles). :)
