Impedance matching - will this combo work?


I currently have the Cambridge Audio P500 and A4 amps. I was considering purchasing some Dynaudio 42's - they get good reviews and I believe good for heavier, rocky music, which suits me.

First of all, I realise that the Dynaudio's don't handle bi-wiring/amping, so I'll be driving them solely from my P500 power amp and using the A4 just as a pre/control amp. The P500 is rated at: 85 watts per channel into 6 ohms, 65 watts into 8 ohms. The Dynaudio's have an impedance of 4 ohms. Will there be problems with this combination?

No problem. Just let your ears decide when its running out of steam. If the sound starts to harden and sound loud, then it is loud!
