I just ordered a pair of Polk RIT A9 tower speakers to add on to my 5.1 setup, and I had a question.
My Pioneer 840-Watt 7.1 Channel 3D HDMI Home Theatre Receiver (VSX-926-K) can drive 7 speakers, but i'm worried about power. The two existing towers + bookshelf + center + sub = 900 Watts based on their specification sheets under "power capability".
I haven't had any issues, but when I add the RIT A9's to the receiver, am I going to melt something?
I've also seen people in the user reviews mention they need a dedicated amplifier. Can you shed some light on what you would recommend in this regard?
The 5.1 setup i'm adding the RIT A9's to are infinity (if it matters), and here is a link to the 5.1's I have.
Basically I want to use the towers for front and back left & right, and mount the bookself speakers on the back wall behind my head, but thats a ton of extra power.
Appreciate any feedback, and go easy on an audiophile newbie
