    Hi all

    I am considering getiing some M&K speakers after Xmas, but I noticed that they are 4ohm rated and not the more usual 8 ohms.

    I believe that I am right in saying that the 100x5r should power these quite hapilly, but can anyone explain to me if I am wrong and what if any difference 4ohm vs 8 ohm means to me.

    The M&K's are the K series and the 850 series I am considering.

    In fact has anyone got any of these and what do they think of them?

    They will have to be wall mounted, again does this make any difference?

    4ohm shouldn't be any bother for the 100x5R, my front 3 speakers are 4ohm Linns and the rears are 6ohm.

    The 100x5 will have no problems with a 4 0hm load as long as it's not especially reactive also....you will find they dont quite double output into steadily decreasing loads,and heavily reactive loads do make them sound a bit strained,but the M&K's should be fine.
