    Exclamation More Info

    Okay so to those of you that were very helpful this is not to you but for those of you that laugh when I ask about ohms or powering LSi15's this is to you. If you know a book, website, or someone to talk to to get more info that I seek so I know what some of you are talking about please share it with me. I ask questions to gain more info on audio thats all. Not to get laughed at when asking it. So if anyone has any good info they would like to share with me please do. Otherwise leave you smart coments to yourself. Thank You Your Freind Matt :)

    I am not sure if I qualify but -

    Click the search button at the top, put in "LSi15 power 4 ohm" without the quotes and see what you come up with. You might also try "LSi15 AVR" - you will have alot more to filter through but look for threads talking about "what reciever or AVR should I buy".

    Happy reading.

    Matt,

    1. 4 ohm loads are hard on AVR's ( they tend to run hot and shut down or go out for good )
    2. LSi series demands higher watts per channel. They sound great on 200 wpc.
    3. Good luck and enjoy.

    The speakers you are talking about are a 4 ohm load.
    This is a lower impedance then a standard 8 ohm speaker.
    What does this mean ?
    It only means you need an amplifier or receiver happy driving 4 ohms.
    Not all amplifiers are happy driving a 4 ohm load.
    Look for a 4 ohm rated amplifier.

    Room size will also dictate just how much power you will need.
    It is always better to have too much then too little.

    You might also want to post a question about what amps other Polk owners are using on that speaker.

    Nice edit there ka7niq.

    BA, much of the discussion here is from years of experience and lots of reading. I can't think of 1 or 2 publications that could cover the scope of audio electronics. This is a field that you need to start with the basics and once you understand the basics you can then apply those to a given situation.

    Perhaps look at Amazon and see if there is an electronics principles book on there. Many times if you get am electronics publication very little is spelled out for audio purposes.

    Sure you have taken some abuse but just keep plugging away and you'll find some solid suggestions. There are no short cuts in this hobby and my personal knowledge has come from years and years of using/buying electronics and reading as much as I could get my hands on. Experience pays in this hobby so get going on those experiences.

    H9
    "Appreciation of audio is a completely subjective human experience. Measurements can provide a measure of insight, but are no substitute for human judgment. Why are we looking to reduce a subjective experience to objective criteria anyway? The subtleties of music and audio reproduction are for those who appreciate it. Differentiation by numbers is for those who do not".--Nelson Pass
