Will this damage anything? (Denon AV 1603)


Standard Member
I'm currently running a 'Denon AV 1603' with a pair of 'B&W 602 S3's' as my front speakers. The speakers require 120watts at 8ohms, but the amp outputs 100watts at 8ohms. Is this going to damage anything or will I be OK?

The speakers have only been there for one night so hopefully I won't have caused any long-term damage :rolleyes:
I'm pretty new to the technical side of this so please forgive me if I'm being dumb! :p

Thanks in advance.

Its not that the speakers 'require' 120W, just that they will cope with 120W.
All should be fine.

I did figure it'd be something like that. The information that B&W give you with the speaker is a bit useless to be honest, the specs on their website are for more revealing :thumbsup:

Thanks very much!
