These speakers are unbelievable for the price. I got the center and each floor speaker wired up to an Onkyo HT-RC270 at 200 watts RMS at 4 ohms. I would not put more than 200 watts on each speaker due to the speaker driver diameters and manufacturer recommendation. These speakers sound like Dynaudio or MB quart speakers. Buy these speakers and I promise you that you will not regret it. This speakers set is well worth more than $1,000.00 due to the bi-amping capability, build quality (3/4" MDF material), attached floor stand, and speaker driver quality. The surrounds (outer suspension) of these speakers are not made of cheap foam but rubber. It took me over two years to decide on some new speakers and boy oh boy I am glad I picked these.
The subwoofer is powered passively by an amp that you must supply yourself but you can easily build in an Dayton plate amplifier to power this amp. I put about 200 watts on this sub and it is clean and loud.
Buy this!!!!, and be sure to indicate what finish you want. You can get this set in a champagne or silver finish. Me personally, I prefer the champagne finish due to its classy appearance.
