Default Re: Pairing Amps with Speakers

I checked some measurements on the JBL's and, indeed, the impedance does hover at less than 5 ohms over much of the audio band. I also found that it's quite difficult to find A/V receivers that are spec'd at 4 ohms. One of the spec sets you gave is from the low-end Harmon-Kardon. That line touts their high current drive and would likely be the best bet to drive the JBLs. If you can afford it though, step up to more power than 30 WPC. Everything I"ve seen about the audio performance of HK receivers is quite positive
