Rf-whtib cutting out

[ Edited ]
Hello,
I have a rf-whtib system powering 8ohm, 140 watt surround speakers from a Sony str-dg500 receiver. I am experiencing speaker cut out at high volume loads. It almost seems as if the speakers are being overloaded, causing them to clip. Any tips to alleviate / avoid this problem?
Thanks

Hello JimiStixx,

 

The receiver will support 4-16 ohm speakers but only 25W's per speaker at 4 ohms. I believe the speakers you are using aren't getting enough power from the receiver thus cutting out as you try to turn the volume higher. I would recommend trying speakers that require a lower wattage amount.

Thank you for your reply.
You mentioned the 4ohm @ 25w spec. What does that mean in a setup consisting of a receiver outputting 8ohm signal out to 8ohm speakers? Just wondering, thanks again.

Hello JimiStixx,

With a receiver thats recommend ohm and W is 4ohm @ 25 W. If you use 8ohm speakers then this will cut the optimal max wattage the speaker should be in half. (8ohm at 12.5W per speaker). Now, it is possible to use speakers that require more than the optimal wattage but generally the speaker won't perform as well(cutting out, not very loud, etc.) and may even get damaged. I hope this explanation answered your question
