SOURCE: 4 ohm and 8 ohm speakers
You can plug in higher ohm speakers , the higher the ohm the higher the resistance is, it is a danger when you plug lower ohm speakers into a higer ohm Amp , at a high volume that will cause them to blow , the center speaker would be fine to use a higer ohm speaker , your best choice is to buy a Active Subwoofer, which means the sub has it's own power supply , and u can blast the thing as much as u like , thn u can turn the bass down on all the other speaker's so u can play it louder , and have the sub turned up has high as u like , this is the best way to get great sound with high volume , buy a Active sub woofer , any active subwoofer is ok , a active sub woofer has its own volume and inputs on the speaker ,

Please check with the manual of your receiver whether it is capable of running 4 ohm speakers.
if yes, then please go ahead, you will not loose any Sound quality. Sound quality will depend a lot on the performace of the speaker as well as the frequency range it can deliver.
If no, please do not connect. Though, you might be able to play and listen to the music, but it will overload your receiver!!
If you are not sure, please let me know the brand and model of your receiver and I can check for you.
Please do rate this solution and thanks for using FixYa!

I=E/R Current = voltage divided by resistance.
4 ohms versus 8 ohms = higher current flow which will cause the amplifier (power transistor) to get hotter.

SOURCE: pushing 4 ohm speaker systems
Officially this receiver supports only 6 and 8 ohm speakers. But for surround speakers it should not do any harm, because they are not played at full volume. But be sure to set yamaha for 6 ohm speakers.
Using only 4 ohm speakers makes the amplifier work more hard and produce more heat, that's why you can't use it at high volume.

SOURCE: I have Behringer 1c monitor
This is a problem I have had as well. Know that Yamaha and other manufacturers that give an 8 ohm minimum spec DO NOT reccomend hooking 4 ohm speakers up to their amplifiers. That being said, I have had no problems with the Behringer 1C on Onkyo, Sony and JVC amps. You *must* be careful to regulate your listening volume, and be aware that the distortion the amp produces into a 4 ohm load is much higher than with 8 ohms. You also take the risk of cooking your output transistors.
It is up to you to decide if the risk, the neccessary self imposed volume limiting and the added distortion are worth it.

1000 W RMS @ 1.5 ohm - 4 ohm (11V-14.5V)
THD at Rated Power:
<0.05% @ 4 ohm
>95dB below rated power (A-weighted, 20 Hz - 20 kHz noise bandwidth)
5 Hz - 250 Hz (+0, -1dB)
>500 @ 4 ohm / 50 Hz
According to the chart your amp is only stable down to 1.5 Ohms, so running at .75 Ohms the noise you are hearing is the amp clipping (running more power than it can handle at low ohms)
I would suggest wiring it in series, or you could adjust the gain on the amp until the popping goes away.
Hope this helps.
