Looking for some real quick help for a newbie. I own (but not yet using) a yamaha 773 receiver here:

http://usa.yamaha.com/products/audio-visual/av-receivers-amps/rx/rx-v773_black_u/?mode=model

I would like to use these S-10 speakers for the surround and back speakers in the 7.1 setup in a dedicated HT room (also, I am not the type to go super loud with the audio). I know a difference between wattage in receiver and speakers are ok, especially with the less used surround, but is the difference here too much? Am I making some sort of rookie mistake? Thanks for any input.

Seems like these promo codes are directly tied to specific email addresses.

The S10's are back on sale for $149.99 w/ promo code EMCYTZT3842. $30 off and down from $179.99. Not as good as the original deal but still better than nothing if someone has been waiting to get this set.

The email just came in today and said it started yesterday, 17 July @ 12:01 AM PST going through tonight, 18 July. So hurry!

What is the recommended use of these speakers? Rear speakers only?

The s10 are for rear light duty use, I had a pair and returned them. The best I could say about the s10 is that there light weight and easy to hang on any wall. As for the SQ , I did return them.

The s10 need to be Xed at a high hz were many large subs don't sound sweet.
Also I ran the s10 in stereo only, the high end sparkle was missing. The s10 sounded dull and lifeless, with two large horns, It was very disappointing.
The same can be said about the B-20, the horns in these speakers are just dull and lifeless.
