Ive got a sony home reciever, when playing movies my center channel cutts off after 2hrs of watching a movie. The suround sound still plays its just the center channel whats up with this?

well what kind of center is it? i would go with the impedance mismatch, but it shouldn't take 2 hrs for it to shut down.

What's the resistance of the speaker ? What impedance is the center channel rated for ?

That could be the case ...

the center is 4ohms and the reciever is rated 4ohms, I dont get it. :crap:

I just looked and my audiosource speakers (center, lb, rb,b) are all rated at 8ohms the only speakers that are rated 4ohms is the MTX fr, fl, speakers. Why does it cut out after 2 hours, i usually play movies at a medium level.

yeah lol i was thinkin that not many receivers are rated at 4 ohms. what i'd do is to sell those speakers and pm me for more information (not about selling, but something else)

Would help to know what the surround speakers are (model #'s), as you'd want to timbre-match your center to the surrounds/mains.

Hey, they updated their godawful website format, though...I'll give them that.

Have you had a bad experience with Madisound? Did they touch you?
