Sonance TR3000?

by Confusimo / February 6, 2015 12:46 PM PST

I have 4 sonance tr 3000 ceiling speakers. I posted on another forum about my speaker troubles. Somebody said they are 4ohm speakers. But these cnet links says 4/6 ohms.

I want to buy a new receiver instead of messing with an amp or anything else. But want to make sure before I buy one. My current is 8ohm and is not compatible. So I want to make sure.

So it is 4 or 6 ohm? Or does 4/6 mean it can handle both and I don't need a 4ohm reciever (yes pyle makes some like PT590AU is 4ohm). If its 6 I can buy a 6 otherwise I have to have 4. So is it 4 or 6 ohm. Anyone know?

They are circa 1996 or 1997.

New speakers will be expensive. The ones we have are fine. We hardly ever used them. I have decided to get a new receiver just for those. This is good enough.

Unless I can get away with 4 of these.

But they might be smaller. And even if not installation is probably a lot. Its probably not as easy as unscrewing my old ones and popping these in.

Plus the yamahya has bluetooth.

Or I can get this.

I read somewhere there is an 4/8 ohm switch except the specs say 6 ohms. But at bestbuy today I saw it and there was no physical switch. Maybe its in the settings. But I can't mix and match anyhow.

I sent sonance an email. And I will see what they say. If its not 6 and truly is 4 I'll just get the yamaha.

That's good enough.
