    I need a little help putting together a surround sound setup for my bedroom. I have a Sony STR-DE475 reciever. It puts out 80.0 Watt - 8.0 Ohm on each channel. I already have a powered sub running off the line level subwoofer out. I just need some help picking out the 5 surround speakers. I don't want to spend a whole lot I just need some decent sound. I have been looking on ebay and all I see are speakers that are 3ohms or 6ohms. Would it be okay to use them on my reciever? Like, if the speakers need 60watts - 6ohms is it okay to use them on my reciever? Is there some kind of conversion or am I just going to be better off getting 8ohms speakers? I dont want to run my reciever too hot and mess it up and not get good sound. I cant seem to find a decent set of 8ohms speakers that arent too pricey. Can anyone reccoment me something? I dont need professional stuff just decent level speakers.

    I was looking at this kit but its 6ohms... would this be okay to use on my reciever?

    6 ohm is likely fine. I wouldn't use 3 ohm.

    I'd get an Energy Take Classic 5.0 set, ~$200.

    i have one problem with the energy take classic set - they don't get close to 100hz meaning you have a gap between sat and sub or crossover too high.

    i like the athena ls50's @$60/pr and lsc50 @$60/ea for 5 speakers for $180 total.

    good luck
