I recently emailed Denon's Tech Dept, to ask about the capability of the 3805 & 4ohm speakers in general, particularly the Lsi25,15, & Lsi9. Here is the email.
Can the Denon avr-3805 comfortably power a 5.1 Speaker system that consists of only 4ohm speakers. I have heard different opinions & was wondering what your opinion was. Thank You, Eric
We do not recommend using 4 ohm speakers with any of our units. It may cause the unit to overheat and shut down at higher volumes. Please use 6 ohm or higher.
I need some feedback from people who own a denon 3805 & some Lsi polks. I have heard that the Lsi Polks actually run closer to 6 ohms in "real world" use. I get the feeling denon responded in that way due to warranty issues. An old word called Liability. I want to get a denon 3805 with an lsi25,15,9...not sure yet...lsic,lsifx,lsiw... Everyones input is welcome especially people who actually own the equipment in Question. Thank You, Eric
