    Just inherited a pair of M & K speakers (well, loaned). Now the instructions say that the impedance of the speakers is 8ohm, but the speakers themselves say nothing. I thought the speakers had less of a tolerence, and before hooking them up and exloding them, I thought I'd better check to see if anyone can shed some light on the matter.

    The speakers are being hooked up to a Yamaha RX-V4600, and this does 8ohm.

    Any thoughts?

    Also, does it matter that the speakers are American?

    M&K are *usually* 4 Ohm.

    American speakers work just as well anywhere else in the world, as they do in the States. :)

    It is true that a lot of M&K speakers are 4ohm, these are 8ohm surround speakers & as such should work fine as rears, will not give much below 100hz though.
