I'm looking to buy a pair of speakers to complete the 7.1 surround sound after buying the Jamo S 426 HCS 3 5.0 set. The Jamo set is 6ohms, so I was wondering if I would need to make sure the extra speakers are in fact 6ohms as well? I would assume this is the proper thing to do since the receiver would have to be setup properly for the 6ohms of the Jamo instead of the typical 8ohms anyway and probably wouldn't be good to mix them?

I'm not sure how all that works from a technical aspect which is why I am asking before I try and find the additional speakers to buy. Any help would be appreciated.

you can mix 6ohm and 8ohm speakers just fine.

If you look on ebay you'll probably find some small Jamo bookshelf speakers that will fit your needs.

You might try a quick look on Craigslist. Lots of opportunist picked up multiple sets when they were on sale last month. Might find someone willing to part out the set.
