There are lots and lots of good speaker sets. Give us a price range. Remember AVS has special HTIB and speaker forums. I have Axiom speakers and I think they are a good match for the 1522, since several are 4 ohm or 6 ohm impedance, which the 1522 has no problem with. Except most would say that the Axiom subwoofers are overpriced.
I will post the exact model number and weather or not the speakers are attached by RCA connectors or not. I tried looking for a similar HTIB and found this (newer model) and here are the specifications
Front 160W x 2 (1kHz, 3ohms, 10% THD)
Center 160W (1kHz, 3ohms, 10% THD)
Surround 160W x 2 (1kHz, 3ohms, 10% THD)
Subwoofer 200W (100Hz, 3ohms, 10% THD)
Power Output [Home Theater Mode (FTC)]
Total Power 430W
Front 60W x 2 (120Hz-20kHz, 3ohms, 1% THD)
Center 90W (120Hz-20kHz, 3ohms, 1% THD)
Surround 60W x 2 (120Hz-20kHz, 3ohms, 1% THD)
Subwoofer 100W (45Hz-120Hz, 3ohms, 1% THD)
mine is from 2009 and had a dvd player. I am afraid that since this newer one has a 3 ohms mine being older will also definitely have that which I have read cannot be used with the Stand alone receivers.
Also, If I can recall correctly, I think I connected the speaker wire ends into the red and white things on the back of the HTIB receiver.
