Just purchased the Onkyo HT-S6300, will be replacing my Onkyo TX-SR600 (which still works like a champ after 8 years) so I can have HDMI switching, upscaling, etc. However, I wondered if I should keep my existing SKS-HT500 speakers and powered sub, or swap in the new speakers that come with the HT-S6300 (assuming I will be staying 5.1)?

Here are the specs I could gather:

SKS-HT500:
  • L/R: 2 x 5.25" woofers, 1" dome tweeter
  • Surrounds: 4" midrange drivers, 1" dome tweeter
  • Center speaker: 2 x 4" woofers, 1" tweeter
  • 8" 150-watt active subwoofer
  • L/R Speakers are 16.5" tall, Center is 15.25" wide, Surrounds are 8.5" tall
  • 8 ohms

HT-S6300:
  • L/R/C: 1 x 4" woofer, 1" tweeter
  • Surrounds: 3 1/4" cones
  • 10" 290-watt active subwoofer
  • All speakers are about 12" tall
  • 6 ohms

The new receiver claims 130 w/channel (6 ohms, 1kHz). The old speakers are larger and have dual woofers, not sure if that makes them better. Is it as simple as keeping the larger, more powerful sub? Any way to tell from these specs which speakers are better? Trying to figure out which components to sell, any input is appreciated.

Thanks,
