    Default 5.1...

    so i returned the speakers should get a newegg gift card of 180$ and will be adding new speakers.
    i'm wondering am i able to max the volume on this receiver http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882105672

    with out the speaker blowing up

    i'm thinking now on 4 Monitor 45b http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882290269
    or 2 Monitor 60 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882290206
    and a 15C as center http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882290273

    i originally didn't want to spend more then 200$ on speakers but now that the satellite speakers weren't that good
    i'm willing to go up to 400sh on speakers, i'm also not sure if one of the satallite speaker broke because i turned volume 2 high with that receiver.This will be for gaming>movie that's why it wont be so expensive ..

    you sound very young or just clueless.
    I personally do not know of any receiver or power amp for that matter that you will be able to MAX-OUT the volume without damage to speakers. Most all audio receivers or power amps only have so much to give once past that point your throwing CLIPPED signals to the speakers and that will ruin speakers every time. When you start to hear some distortion TURN IT DOWN or suffer the consequences.

    i'm 21 yea i'm young in terms of audio yes i'm a kid idk nothing about speakers/sub/receiver that's why i'm asking now i know i wont be turning them up so high i was thinking because a receiver says 100w/ch and a speaker shows Power Rating
    25-1xxw per ch well you get it but even so the receiver did shutdown to prevent dmg. so i'm asking witch speaker is better and witch will last me longer...

    The receiver shut down to prevent damage to itself...they do that when the speakers have been damaged and the circuit is "seeing" a short. The receiver doesn't care about the speakers.

    Your wattage range is a minimum that you can safely run your speakers at to a maximum they can handle in spike situations. You don't want to drive them at or near their max wattage capabilities for very long or any speaker will die a horrible death.
    Even high end speakers subjected to abuse won't last.

    If you have the room, go for the 60's. You can always add more speakers at a later date.

    I think what Pitdogg is trying to say is that any reciever/amp can do serious damage to any speaker if it is driven to hard. Most AVR's will start clipping somewhere between half and 2/3 of max volumns. That is where you will start hearing some dietortion. When you do start hearing distortion, you are in the danger zone, and it's just a matter of time before speaker damage. It doesn't matter if the AVR/amp is rated at 40w and the speakers are rated at 500w. If you push the AVR too hard, the speakers will probably go first, not always but usually.

    The 100w rating on that AVR is 2 channels driven, so with 5 it will probably be closer to 80, and 7 closer to 70. That's just a guess, may be a little higher or lower. With that said, either of the speakers will be fine, just use your ears to help protect them.

    Goodluck with whatever decision you make, and most importantly enjoy.

    That Sony cannot put out much wattage before clipping so BE careful. The first thing I would do is check the scale the Sony uses. Older Sonys maxed out in the high 60s so stay clear of that level. Best to set ALL your speakers to SMALL and crossover at no lower than 80Hz to the sub. Let the SUB do the heavy lifting so that the receiver doesn't clip as easily.

    Also, I hope your room is not too big because that Sony can't handle a largish room!

    Many receivers will ASK you whether you are running Full Range tower speakers (LARGE) that can put out a lot of bass or smaller satellite speakers (SMALL). It's best when you have a low power receiver to ALWAYS choose SMALL or if that is not an option go no lower than 80 hz as the cut off for each speaker and LFE to the sub.
