Will my receiver blow my speakers off

by ceejeeb / May 24, 2006 9:09 AM PDT

I recently purchased a JBL S300 7.1 Speakers and I have ordered Pioneer vsx1015 Receiver. I took Pioneer vsx1015 Receiver, since I got a good deal and its THX certified.

The JBL S300 manual says the recommended maximum power is 100W, where as the Pioneer's specification shows ( that the output would be 180W (6 ohm ).

Will the receiver blow my speakers? ...

Pls. advice me on this.

Just don't turn up the volume to distortion levels. It's better to have a receiver with more power so that you won't be pushing it into a volume that will see any distortion. You can run paper speakers with your amp if you simply listen at lower levels.

This means 100w rms continous power!!!! In a HT system you would never run at this level for hours on end and have any ears left. John

speakers usually blow from under powering them.

most weak amps cant control a speaker very well, witch makes a speaker snap, crackel, and pop.

where a good amp can control the in and out movement with accuracy, giving you better sound and a safe and happy speaker.
