I know practically nothing when it comes to sound set ups so bare with. Hope I posted this in the right spot.

Thinking about matching these speakers and this sub to match with a recent Onkyo receiver I scored for on the cheap. I'm a noob to speaker set ups and wondering if the receiver will be able to power these?

A little info on the stuff.

Receiver:
Power Output
Front L/R
80 W + 80 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
110 W + 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9%, 2 channels driven, FTC)

Center
80 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9%, 2 channels driven, FTC)

Surround L/R
80 W + 80 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
110 W + 110 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.9%, 2 channels driven, FTC)

Dynamic Power: 180 W (3 ohms, 1 ch); 160 W (4 ohms, 1 ch); 100 W (8 ohms, 1 ch)

Sub says Power Output: 50 watts Continuous Average Output and Dynamic Power Output: 100 watts.

These speakers say: Recommended Amplifier Power: 20 - 100 Watts RMS (Continuous)

Thanks for help guys! Hopefully there wasn't a sticky on basic info did some searches but nothing came up.

That's not a problem. But what do the state as the nominal impedance? Do they state a minimum impedance? If anything, that's the critical question, though the odds are you're OK.

I presume the fronts are 8 ohm as well. You have nothing to worry about.
