The Pioneer 41 would be better; the main driver in the 21 is very small. The Pioneers have rather low sensitivity, which is not usually a good match for a lower-powered receiver.
Maybe the Cambridge S30 speakers? they are relatively small and pretty good. The Cambridge S50 center speaker is also excellent and compact.
In any case, I would return them for a refund if it was me.

Any thoughts on the pioneer sp-pk21bs?
I have a Yamaha htr-4065 (same as rx-v473) that my polks are hooked up to right now.
