    Default LSI Center speaker

    I recently bought a LSI Center speaker. The speaker is supposed to be run at 4 ohms. I have a Yamaha receiver model rx-v2300 which only supports 8 or 6 ohms. I turned the receiver to 6 ohms. Is it o.k. to run this speaker at 6 ohms or will it damage it. My system is a 6.1 I have the LSI as my center, mains are RTi 800's, rear's are F/X i30's and my rear main is a CSI 40. Also I recently purchased RTi's for the mains and the right speaker seems to be making noises as if the driver is blown. Is it difficult to replace the drivers on this speaker. I never did it before. I imagine you can buy replacement drivers from Polk. Is that correct. Thanks.

    Hi Bluecomet,

    Your center should play fine until you pump the volume very high. Your receiver may clip and shut down that channel or all its channels.

    As per the blown driver, Call Polk Customer Service and somebody will help you.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Like Sal said you will be OK unless you crank the volume. What sound level do you like to listen? It might be a wise to purchase a muliti-channel amp to power your Front speakers and center channel.

    Very simple. 4 screws and 2 wires with quick connects.

    If you are not sure which driver is blown then swap out the drivers from one cabinet to the other cabinet. then you can easily tell if it's the crossover or the actual driver.

    Take care while using the screwdriver, you don't want to slip or you can damage the surround or the speaker cone.
