    4-Ohm Cerwin-Vega Speakers

    Hi I'm trying to set up my first HT system as a poor college student. My issue is that I have the Cerwin-Vega AVS-5.1 speaker system

    They are 4-Ohm speakers but I've read alot of reviews where people have said they didn't have
    trouble running them. Would I be ok with lets says an entry-level Denon or Yamaha receiver
    that's not be rated for 4 ohms since the speakers are not very large?

    EDIT- Specifically looking at receivers such as Yamaha RX-V550 or Denon AVR-485S

    Neither should have any problem at any reasonable volume


    The preceding comments have not been subjected to double blind testing, and so must just be taken as casual observations and not given the weight of actual scientific data to be used to prove a case in a court of law or scientific journal. The comments represent my humble opinion which will range in the readers perspective to vary from Gospel to heresy. So let it be.

    To be honest, size of speakers have nothing to do with it. My MB Quart are about the size
    of Paradigm minin monitors. My Quarts are 4 ohms at 85db. The db's is what make the
    amp work. We are in the same boat. I'm replacing my Denon AVR1800 with NAD T753.
    The Denon worked but did not make my speakers really sing like they should.

    Just about any receiver on the market will run your Cerwin Vega speakers just fine.
