    Hi, Newbie here :hiya: and new to all this but require some help.

    I've just ordered a SONY DG910 Amp and it's on its way:thumbsup:

    I've also just ordered some JAMO JA-A102HC S5 speakers:thumbsup:

    But, I've just noticed that the Sony AMP states 8 Ohm to 16 Ohm speaker impedance. And the speakers are all 6 Ohm.:oops:

    Will it matter? I really like the speakers and they get good reviews on here and elsewhere. I need to cancel order this morning if I've screwed up.

    Any advice?

    Thanks

    Lee

    I 'think' it should be ok as long as you don't rant the volume up too high.

    Don't quote me on it, someone help out here?

    Thanks for the reply.. it's what I was thinking too.

    :oops:, just quoted you!

    Bit disappointed with lack of responses... seems an easy enough question (except for me!)

    It is pretty much standard for any consumer amp to accept a 4 ohm to 16 ohms load (per channel), and has been the standard from many decades.

    I don't think you will have a problem.

    Your amp will run these speakers fine. Connect up and enjoy!

    PS Lee, you posted in the wrong section - you most likely wanted the Integrated AV Amplifiers & Receivers section!

    Good point ! I think that highlights my poor knowledge of the subject.

    Thanks for the reassurance.

    Your amp will push a few more watts through them with them beaning 6 ohms...your power out put on your amp relates to 8 ohms as standard..enjoy:thumbsup:

    I wouldn't worry in the least.

    Many eight Ohm speakers can dip as low as three Ohms at lower frequencies and peak as high as thirty three elsewhere, depending on the frequency being emitted.

    There are also plenty of four Ohm speakers that remain a very even load at all frequencies.


    They're a really good little budget speaker package that could only realistically be expected to be partnered with a similar level of amp. I'd say given the small size of the Jamos and the fact that they shouldn't be setup with a crossover that will allow anything remotely like a low frequency (read current hungry and demanding) near them, you will have absolutely no problems.

    Should be ok, just means the speakers are more sensitive, so dont turn volume up!
