    how do you tell if speakers are compatible with AV recievers? I have five 6 ohm satelites & an active sub how can I know if these are compatible with a particular amp or not? i'm far from decieded on an amp but would a Yamaha RXV450 work with my sony 6 ohm speakers & would have any trouble with the Sub too?

    Thanks for any help :thumbsup:

    Check you user instructions to see whether the amp can drive speakers with a 6 ohm impedence.

    If you hav'nt got the instruction manual to hand, you might find more info on your kit HERE.

    The speakers should not present an electrical compatibility problem for your amp unless they are some esoteric design.

    There is a setting in the Yamaha receivers for 6 ohm speakers. This is the link to the manual for the 457 ---- page 12 of the manual (not the PDF) in this link:

    http://www.yamaha-uk.com/pdf/owner_manuals/RX-V457.pdf

    the 450 is probably the same --- you could do a search for the 450 manual on the yamaha site. Don't know about the sub
