I have an Onkyo HT-6200 system. It has a Powered Zone 2 feature, but all it says is that its 130watts @ 6ohms. Some websites say that is peak wattage, some say that is RMS wattage. I find it hard to believe that it is RMS wattage. Either way, how can I find out out, or does anyone know what the real RMS wattage output is on this receiver? I want to buy some Zone 2 ceiling speakers that match well with this receivers RMS power output but I don't know if I need to buy expensive 130watt RMS speakers or if I just need normal 45watt RMS speakers.. any help would be greatly appreciated!

1). There is no such thing as "real" wattage, though I guarantee that receiver is not capable of anthing anywhere near 130 watts in the real world. 2). Since watt ratings are so meaningless, there is also no such thing or need to "match" power ratings.
