I plan on Hooking up two 8 inch subs and one 10 inch sub to the reliever by the way. The two 8 inch are the 6 ohm speakers.

I don't know what you are doing, but if it's some sort of parallel hookup, you could end up with a lower than 6 ohm impedance. See ohm's law for details.

I just looked it up on wiki and I cant understand it.
The JVC speakers came with a MXJ-900 so they are all in one. Will those blow the harmon karden receiver?

Are you hooking up these speakers?
And if so, are there 2 sets of hook-ups for each speaker? The product description seems to indicate that the main full-range part of the speaker (front facing) is totally separate to the side-firing woofers. Thus each speaker is essentially 2 speakers in one, needing a total of 4 channels to amplify the pair.
If that is the case, then I think using these speakers is a terrible idea. Or at least, use them only as the front-firing speakers, and ignore the separate side-firing woofers. If each section is rated at 6ohm, then hooking both sections up to one channel each will present a 3ohm load to the receiver, which is not a good idea (overloading the amp).

By the way, I'd rather have this receiver than the HK 1600 and it cost less too!
This is the equivalent of the RX-V667. Better room calibration on the Yamaha and preouts for external amplification.
