Sure why not...what AVR and speaker are those? Many AVR's rate their power with 1 or 2 channels driven so depending on the manufacturer you could get between 50-70W/ch. with all channels driven. So you won't be overpower and certainly not underpower. Hook up and enjoy!

I'm thinking of replacing the speaker that came in this HTIB coz' i'm not so happy with the included speaker specially when listening music.

sir SAV thanks for the inputs.


If i pair all infinity speakers to feed the 7 channel speaker will i'll be fine no matter how much volume i played?

mcjefferson you can call me just Sav
the damage or possible damage will depend on the measurments of the room and your tolerance for high volumes. AVR's can clip ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clipping_%28audio%29 ) and damage your speaker but in most cases the hearing volumes will be way uncomfortable. This is most common with low rated power equipment in big rooms. I wouldn't worry about it to much as I would about my hearing...that is the reason we enjoy this hobby

Ok thank you so much. so here is the final and i'm about to pick this set of speakers. they are the infinity primus speaker.


main L/R



center



2 sets for surround back and surround



hooking up to this a/v receiver:



most of the time this set of speakers will played at higher volume, it seems everyone in the family like to crank this receiver, thats why i place it in well ventilated area.

Anyone agree that this combination will be fine?

Sounds like you're getting Infinity P162 fronts, PC252 center and P152 as surrounds. Those will be FAR BETTER than your current Onkyo speakers. They also have a higher sensitivity than your s5300 speakers which make it easier for your receiver to drive them to louder volumes.

Guys i ran out of stock of infinity speakers in store that i went in but the sales person suggest me the monitor audio bookshelf, he says that this speaker would be more easy to drive with my current avr even in higher volume of listening.so i decided to take a research again and gather some advice and thoughts from you regarding this matter. here is the specs of monitor audio the model is bx2 for my main front.




hope to hear again from you guys.
