    The first option is the closest match to your speaker setup.
    "main a or b 4ohm
    a + b 8ohm
    cetre rear 6ohm
    rear 6ohm"

    Do you use A and B at the same time with 4 ohm speakers?
    If you do beware because this can be to hard for the amp.

    To paste a picture it has to be so small that we probaby would'nt ba able to see it anyway. But if you want to see at the bottom where yo post, there is a line that says: attach file.

    yep i do use A + B at the same time, what will happen to the amp and why please??? is it because of the ohm's that the speakers are.


    thanx for the reply.

    What happens?
    When you run 2 pairs of 4 ohm speakers on an amp that says A + B 8 ohms only it will probably not have enough power to drive all the speakers whenit reaches a sertan volume. When it reaches it's limit for what power it can produse it's driven in to clippin and might blow your speakers and itself.:eek:

    But if it has managed that until now, you're probably going to get away with it. Just check the temp on the amp, if it gets wery hot, turn down the volume or run just 1 pair of speakers.
