I'm new to this forum (and to audio system set-ups as this basic question indicates.) I have read some of the past posts about matching speakers with receivers and am having trouble specifically determining which speakers I could use with my Denon 2106 A/V receiver (7.1 channels rated at 100 watts per channel). I would prefer not to add an amplifier to the system (limited space in the components area). The room is a carpeted, wood-paneled, 20x30 den. We would watch movies and listen to music at moderate volume. I don't want the receiver to run hotter than normal.
I had wanted to get LSi 15's and an LSi C but in reading the comments, it appears that these 4 ohm speakers wouldn't work without amps, right?
My fallback was the RTi Line. What is the largest that would work as front speakers with my receiver?
Would a CSi 5 (20-200 watts recommended) work, along with FXi5 surrounds or do I need to drop down to CSi 3 or lower?
Thanks for your suggestions.
