Hi, guys.

I just posted this under amplifiers:
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1492318/need-help-matching-impendances

But if that doesn't work out, I think I might need a pair of super-cheap-but-decent-quality 8-ohm surround speakers for my system. Is it possible for $100 to $150? (Even that makes me cringe right now.) Any recommendations?

You can get a pair of the Pioneer BS-22 speakers for around $120, and they are quite amazingly good for that price.

I suggest that you read the Stereophile review they did on them recently.

Fry's Electronics has the Infinity Primus P163 on sale for $114/pr quite often. If those are too big you can step down to the P153.

If you catch the right sake the BS22 will be on sale for $77 at Frys.

How do I catch the right sale? I live a bit far from Fry, to just go and see if there's a sale on. And how do you know they'd be $77?

Ads come out on Friday morning. Check Frys.com

Usually they're on sale online too the first few days with free shipping.

BIC Venturi....these sound great and about $100 bucks a pair. I am running them as my entire rear set-up on a 7.1 receiver.

I'll support both the Infinity and Pioneer recommendation (I use infinity 360's myself for surrounds), and throw in Behringer 2030P's .

Alright, so I appreciate the Pioneer recommendation -- seems like a great pair of speakers, but... any recommendations for something a little bit smaller and wall-mountable?
