I have a question about a few receivers and if they will be powerful enough to run the things hooked up to them.

The first will be a Yamaha HTR-6030 - http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-HTR-6030BL-5-1-Channel-Digital-Receiver/dp/B000O3OF86/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

Connected to it will be 2x's Infinity and a JBL Studio 1 Series SUB150P subwoofer.



The other receiver will be one of the 2, I haven't decided yet. (Opinions between the 2 or something comparable in this price range *Under $300* is welcomed)

Connected this receiver will be 2x's Infinity P363's http://www.amazon.com/Infinity-Primus-P363-Three-way-Floorstanding/dp/B0046A8R3M/ref=pd_bxgy_e_img_y and a subwoofer. I'm not sure which sub yet however. I might use my old one, a Yamaha TST-SW012 http://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-YST-SW012-8-Inch-Front-Firing-Subwoofer/dp/B000TQ4D8K or look into purchasing a new sub, I was considering http://www.amazon.com/Polk-Audio-Monitor-10-Inch-Subwoofer/dp/B00030CHQ2/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16882290130 however I am already spending a good chunk of money and I am unsure of buying a sub. I do want one, I just live in an apartment and not sure how much use I can get out of one anyways without being a disturbance smile.gif

Thanks for any replys!

You'll be fine with the Infinity bookshelf speakers, JBL bookshelf speaker with Yamaha 6030. That's an older receiver, I take it that you already own it?

You can get the Infinity P163 for $59ea from Fry's thru tonite. So a pair would be $119 plus shipping which might be up to $30. So around $150 total max.

If you have a Fry's close by you can do in store pickup which saves you on shipping.

I wouldn't waste money on the Polk PSW-10 as its not very good. Continue to use your Yamaha until you can afford something better.

The Polk PSW 505 would be a good choice though.

The Yamaha 373, Onkyo 515 and also Pioneer VSX-1022 should all work fine with the Infinity towers.

You'll just need to decide what features you need.

Without really looking in depth, I'll say this: You're not, as a general rule, going to have a problem driving typical speakers with a typical receiver. All these components look to fall into that category.

The subwoofer is a bit independent, as most have their own amplifier and there is no concern at all about receiver power.

Thanks for the help, after doing more research I decided to jump into the deep end and just went all out (Im sure the wife will be thrilled). And 'all out' is within my budget means but im sure not much to others.

I purchased on Onkyo reciver for $250 on Accessories4less and for the sub I just decided I was going to man up and purchased the RW-12D biggrin.gif

And yes I do already currently own the Yamaha 6030, just moving that over to the computer.
