    I have an all in one home theater Sony DAV-S300 without any speakers and any cable? Can I add JBL NSP1 plus SVS Subwoofer in order to make small 5.1 speaker home theater? I mean if the power should be considered. Anybody have any idea about the non-standard jack in Sony DAV-S300 to connect speaker?

    i don't think it'll work. you really need to buy a new receiver. those JBL n24's have a sensitivity of 86 which is pretty low. i doubt that that sony could power them to a descent volume.

    If you are thinking of a passive SVS, it definitely will not work. If you are thinking a PCI or better, then you should really be considering a new receiver with that money.

    The NSP1 should work OK, they don't really require too much power, but you will have to figure out how to get around the connector issue.

    I appreciate you guys' replies. If I don't want to throw away this Sony DAV-S300, what kind of speaker I should search? What about the solution for the connector?
