I just bought a pair of Polk Lsi 15 speakers. They are rated at 4 ohms. My old Sony 5.1 receiver is rated at 8 ohms. I was wondering if someone with some experience could answer a couple of questions for me:
1. Is is safe for both my speakers and receiver to run them?
2. Could you recommend an affordable set up to resolve this issue?
3. Is there a decent 5.1 or 7.1 receiver that could appropriately power these monsters? Or, will I absolutely need to buy pre-amps?
I currently have the bi-wired but the sound is still not up to par. Any help and/or advice would be greatly appreciated. I was also told NOT to bi-amp on the same receiver using a+b speakers.
