    Cerwin Vega VS-100 speakers

    I have owned these speakers for about 20 years as part of my garage stereo. I used to power them with an equally old Pioneer 70wpc stereo receiver. The receiver is failing so I ordered a Yamaha R-S202 100wpc receiver to replace. But now I found out that the speakers are 6 ohm, not 8 as I thought.
    Will the Yamaha R-S202 be ok to drive the VS-100s?

    Yes, it should have no problem. I'm currently using a Yamaha receiver to drive 6 Ohm front speakers as part of my bedroom 5.1 system.

    Agreed I don't know the specs on those particular speakers but Cerwin Vegas in general are usually pretty efficient speakers so I think youll be able to get some high SPL's without damaging that Yamaha.
