this is probably a completly assinine question, but here it goes. i just bought some event 20/20 v2 passive moniter speakers, and when i hooked them up to my reciever and gave a listen they worked fine until i turned the volume up on my reciever (it was set to very low) and as soon as i did, my reciever flashed "overload" a few times then shut itself off.
does this mean that the speakers are demanding more power than my reciever can handle or the other way around? and in any case what should i do? im guesing im going to have to buy a amp, which one should i get to work with the speakers? in the manuel for the speakers it says there 88db @ 1W/1M, and elswere online i have seen the label 150watts atrributed to them.
so i guess my question is what are the best and CHEAPEST (under a 100 dollars) amp i can buy for my speakers. and also will there be any problem connecting the amp to my reciever?
