I'm not very experienced when it comes to home audio kinda stuff so I have a question.
My dad has a super old school receiver, a Pioneer RX-511. He must've gotten it sometime in the 80's. I can't find the specifications anywhere online, but from the back it looks like it has an output of 380 Watts
Now the speakers were long blown out so my dad wanted me to get him some new ones, I decided on the Sony SS-B3000
So the speakers are 120 Watts
but the receiver is 380
. In the speaker instructions it says that this is a no-no.
So I'm worried about the speakers now. Is it a bad idea to run these speakers with the old receiver? Now just to make matters more complicated, I asked my dad if the old speakers (that I believe came with the receiver) had a wattage on them. He checked and found 150 Watts
. However, those speakers lasted all the way up until a few years ago!
Any advice guys?
