I have a question regarding this speaker. I bought a pair with CS3 Bookshelf and subwoofer from Sony. I need to choose an AVR and I am quite confused. The CS3 has a 145 Watts maximum input power. On the Web, I have found that choosing an underpowered AVR could damage the speaker due to clipping. I have also found that there should be no problem with a more powerful AVR. Finding an amplifier or AVR supporting 6 ohms speakers with 145 Watts maximum is not obvious for a 7.2.6 home cinema room. What should I choose: an underpowered amplifier/AVR or a more powerful one? For example, is choosing an AVR of 170W for 6 ohms with 2 channel driven would be okay (the power decreases when all channels are used)? Thanks in advance.
Asked by: Stephane
You will not need n amplifier or receiver that is rated to the maximum peak input power of this speaker. You will not have to worry about clipping if the receiver is rated from say 65 to 125 watts RMS per channel at 6 ohms. SOONY does not provide the more accurate RMS or Continuous rating, but it is closer to 75w per channel at 6 ohms.

Can they be used for a sound bar back speakers?
Asked by: Philip
Only if there is a way to hook them up to the soundbar. These are designed to be used as a front L/R stereo pair. Seems like overkill for rear speakers with a soundbar.
