Where did you buy them?\r\n\r\n50% off is a good deal!!\r\n\r\nI've read the Scott 390R can handle 4 ohms. I'm not really sure how true that is. You're probably gonna be ok.\r\n\r\nOh whoops. Amazon has them at 47% off (I rounded up) per speaker.\r\n\r\nI believe the Scott does handle the 4ohm load. Its been a while since I've taken a look at the back-side. If I retain my old speakers into the B and C channels until I can sell them, I'll have to keep it at 8. I usually get confused about the load switch when it comes to 'mismatching' the setup. Stepping down to 4 on an 8 ohm speaker isn't deadly IIRC.
