Hello y'all , I have an onkyo HT-S3400 home theatre system HTiB with receiver onkyo HT-R390 . Now my question is can I hooked up my Onkyo HT-R390 receiver to a Boston Acoustic Soundware S system? Or to any other home theatre system? Thanks!

Instead of the S3400 speakers? Sure. Not always the case with HTIB setups, but the 390 is a stand alone AVR.

No. Looks like the 390 connects to a passive sub only so you would have to use the sub from the S3400 setup. If you don't want to use the S3400 speakers you would be better served returning that whole HTIB and picking up one of the lower end Onkyos on clearance from last year's line and match it up with the BA S setup.

I know this thread is a little old, but it's the best place for my question.

I am trying to do something similar to what the OP was doing but only make it a 2.1 system. I figure i'll use the passive sub but with a good pair of speakers. This reciever though (HT-R390) is rated at 6ohms, yet all the speakers i see are 8 ohms. Do I need to look for a 6ohm speaker?
