I'd like to run a pair of CS400i's (8 ohms)in parallel for my center channel. I have an amp that can handle the 4 Ohm load (rated 300 watts @ 4 ohms) .... Am I looking at doing any harm to my 8 ohm rated speakers by doing this?
The other option is of course using a y-adapter from my pre-amp's center channel and running two separate amp channels for each speaker at 8 ohms.. (This is my current set-up w/ a 125 w/channel amp.. but I'm changing things up a bit) Don't laugh but I'm actually running 4 center channel speakers at the momment.. (The two CI400, plus a pair of rt55i's ... seems like the pair of bookshelves add some punch to the bottom end) Doing this through a two channel amp with an A+B switch that allows for a 4 speaker hookup.) The 4 total with A+B engaged sound better than the CI400s by themselves.. I've got a better amp w/ 4 ohm capability.. thus the reason for the potential change.. :D
