i am currently running a nakamichi av-1 , with paradigm mini montors and center with newly purchased energy c-500 front speakers
k firstly im getting some static noise from my right front speaker im not sure if my amp is on the fritz also when i turn the volume up past a quarter the system clips. im not sure if the speakers are insufficient or my av-1 is done.
the energy speakers are rated for a 100 watts and have a 94db sensitivity rating my av-1 is 100x4 i believe. ne1 know nething about these speakers or if i have mismatched and need a higher end speaker???
