    Hi,

    I want to use a pair of Paradigm Atoms as a centre speaker and intend to wire them in series. They are 8ohm rated so wired in series is 16 ohms total?

    I'm do not want to damage my amp. The impedance selector will be set to;

    Mains 8 ohms or higher
    Centre 8 ohms or higher
    Rears 8 ohms or higher

    Question is on this setting would 16 ohms from the centre speakers be over loading my amp?

    Any help

    I would think not.
    Amps generally prefer higher loads and adjust for them.
    The "8 ohms and higher" seems to explain itself, IMO.
    Don't count on me though.
    Look at this post as a bump :smashin:
