My Reciever has a 3 ohm sub output. Will it hurt either the reciever or the sub to run a 4 ohm sub??

running a sub with higher impedance(ohms), no.
Running a sub with a lower impedance than recommended, quite possibly.

You sure it says 3 and not 8?

Yep, its 3. Kinda wierd...All the speaker outputs are 4 ohms, but the sub is 3 ohms...
So it will hurt my subs if i run them at 3 ohms??

It won't damage the subs or the receiver at all...unless they're DVC or have multiple SVC drivers, you can't "choose" what impedance you're going to have.

Is it a preout or what?? Or is the reciever POWERING your sub??:crap:

Most receivers have subwoofer preouts and NOT speaker outputs.
