    System will be

    Infinity Crescendo CS 3007 fronts
    Infinity Sterling Video center channel
    Infinity SL-30 rears
    JBL northridge e250p subwoofer
    Panasonic SA HE-75 receiver

    I am hoping the crescendos will voicematch up to the other components you think this will work. Also the center channel is small and looks weak but it seems to hold its own on paper, would i need to upgrade it for these speakers? Also what would you guys recommend as a cheap receiver upgrade, something with [email protected] that is 6ohm capable if needed that isn't too much i don't need too many features just good clean power

    Can you get us some links for the Infinity speakers? That’ll make it easier to give you an answer.

    As far as a receiver, Yamaha makes some great stuff that’s more user-friendly than most.

    The rule of thumb is that voice matching requires speakers from the same “family” or model line. More specifically, they’ll all have identical tweeters and matching woofers, or at least a smaller or larger version of the same woofer.

    Voice-matching doesn't apply to the sub - you can use any one you want.
