OL Advents and Advent A3's

Recommended Posts

I just purchased a set of both OLA's and Advent A3's.

Can you stack them in combination like you can OLA's?

The speaker connections on the back panel don't indicate "+" and "ground". One connector says "8 ohms" and the other connector has a "O". What is the correct way to wire them if you are connecting one set of speakers? How do you wire them if you want to stack them, given the odd labels on the back of the speaker?

Thanks, any help would be appreciated.

Well welcome. The 8 is the positive and "0" is negative(ground). As for stacking and connecting be careful you may cause major damage to your amp/receiver if the ohm/resistant drops below 8 ohms parallel. Your amp/receiver may not be able to handle such a low resistance and burnout the outputs.What is your system models?

I have a Harman Kardon 3770 receiver rated at 120 watts per channel. According to the users manual I can push two sets of speakers as long as each set is rated at 8 ohms. The speakers sound great stacked! 

Thanks for your info.

You can run them quad.  The "increase" position on the OLA is effectively the "normal" for the A3, I believe - just an FYI for matching them.

If these haven't been recapped, they ought to be.
