I have an Onkyo 7.1 and all my stuff is mixed matched.
I have:
Main L/R : Quest Q660 - 6ohms
Center/LR/RR : NS-SP50C - 8ohms

Then I bought a 5.1 set up Studio Acoustcs S8/300 came with a sub and 5 small speakers that are 2 speakers atop each other an they can be both angled open. ie like a siscor opening. No clue as to the ohms for these guys as its not in the manual or printed on any of the bodies.

Can I use these guys for my 2 sides or if I buy 2 new bookself speakers for my sides will I hear a big difference in sound or does the sides just output ambient sound so the quality doesn't really matter?

Any input is help full thanks.

Note the the 6th and 7th speakers are in the rear, not at your sides. In a 5.1 setup the surrounds are at the sides.

The rear and sides put out comparable volume and detail. Ideally they should be the same quality.
