    Would the Yamaha RX-V1500 http://www.audioholics.com/cedia/cedia2004/yamahaRX-V1500receiver.php amp be able to drive a 4ohm speaker? The manual shows the ability to switch between 6-8 ohms. I have read from other forums that many amps will drive 4 ohm speakers without any problems even if they are not rated at 4 ohms. I am looking at the following Axiom Epic 80 Home Theater package http://www.axiomaudio.com/epic80.html The M80TIs are rated at 4 ohms, while the QS8 surrounds are 6 ohm speakers. I think the Center is also rated at 6 ohms however not sure. If this amp could handle this setup would I run the amp in 6 or 8 ohms? I am kind of confused why they would pair a 4 ohm speaker with 6 ohms. Thanks

    Should be no problem, the sensitivity (in dB) is quite high.

    There are a few discussions about the same question in these forums here, just search for "Ohm" or "impedance" if you need more details.
