    Yes, set it to read resistance and see what your VC's read.

    Re: multi-meter

    I think in your case the 200 ohm setting is also the continuity tester.

    Re: multi-meter

    subs 3.8-3.9- would be 3.8-3.9 ohms

    rears 5.0-5.1- sounds like their 6 ohm speakers

    sounds like the fronts are blown?
