I bought 2 pairs, 4 speakers total. Looking to match with recommended receiver, amp for optimal performance. Reveiver, amp will be outside not in weather, but if one is best for outside, all the better. What do you recommend?
1 Answer
Hi Geoff, Thanks for showing interest in our products. The AMP200 will power 4 of those speakers with ease and produce high quality audio. It's not outdoor rated, but if you have it in a well protected enclosure, you should be safe. Thanks! -BM 2203

I have a Control4 8 zone amp I am wanting to set-up with wired speakers. I believe the Control4 unit is 120W/channel. Are these suitable speakers for that wattage?
1 Answer
Hi Jeff, 120 watts should be sufficient to power these speakers, but they can take a bit more. If you fully want to utilize a speaker, you could always go with a 6.5" such as the RS690. Thanks! -BM 2196

I have a Denon AVR-2809CI and am looking to use these speakers as my zone 2 speakers for the pool area. Will these work with this receiver?
1 Answer
Hi Derrick, That should be fine. The only issue would be that receivers typically only push about 80-100 watts per channel. Since these are big 8" drivers, they will play, but they sound optimal with 150 watts or so driving them. Call us if you have any further questions. Thanks! -BM 2120

roger
from southampton ma asked:
July 9, 2013
What is the length of the power cord to the speakers ?
1 Answer
The RS840 do not have a power chord, as they are not powered, and need to be run to an amplifier via speaker wire. Depending on how long of a run the speakers will be from the amp, you would either use 16 or 14 gauge wire. You may be interested in our wireless rock speakers, the WR800, which are powered and come with a 8ft power chord. -BM 2067

June 19, 2013
do you think I could run 4 of these speakers with one sonos amp or would I need 2 sonos amps
1 Answer
Hi Patrick, Consider a smaller rock speaker like our RX550. The SONOS is 50W per channel and you can only connect one speaker to each powered output. CL/MA 1996

Hi, I currently have a Sony STR-DE697 Receiver. I'm looking to purchase the RS840 rock speakers (pair) and the OVC-300 Volume Control. Each speaker will be located 40-50 feet from the receiver. 1) Is my current receiver (Sony STR-DE697) suitable for these speakers and volume control? 2) What wire do you recommend I purchase as well? Thanks!
1 Answer
Hi Nick, Are you planning on using the Sony receiver to only drive the RS840 Rock Speakers? If so, you can connect the speaker to Front Speaker A. If you are using the Sony Receiver to power a Home Theater, connect the Volume Control/RS840 speakers to Front Speaker B (A should be connected to your existing right and left front stage speakers). You would have to select which speakers you want to listen to. Assuming you will be turning off your home theater and playing a 2 channel source outside, you would select speaker B. Checkout our CL3/Direct Burial Speaker Wire. You would use 16/4 to connect between your receiver and the Volume Control. It features four conductor (R+/- and L+/-) in a single jacket rated for in-wall applications and is approved for direct burial. From the Volume Control you will need 16/2, two conductor speaker wire from the volume control one to the left and a second to the right speaker. Also checkout out Aqua Blue Direct Burial terminating connectors. You will definitely need a pair for each speaker. TL/MA-1794
