I have an Onkyo TXDS 787 receiver rated at 100 watts continuous and it says to use speakers rated at 6 ohms or higher. I would like to get the vp 150, though it is rated at 4 ohms and I may be better off going with the vp100. The entire system I would like to get is a pair of M60s (or possibly the m22ti), the VP150, a pair of QS8s and perhaps some m3tis for the rear surround channel. Will I be exceeding the power capacity of my receiver with this combo? If so would you please make a recommendation for me that doesn't include buying a power amp. I may have access to an older Denon power amp for the rear surrounds. The size of my room is 20ft L, 17 ft. W, 7 ft. H and it is very live sounding due to hardwood floors and two large windows that have no coverings. I do have a powered sub by velodyne rated down to 28 hz.
Will all of these speakers be able to be used in the large setting for Dolby Digital?
thanks,
David

You will have no problem running the either the M60s or the M22s with the VP150 and QS8s with your receiver. In fact it would be the suggested combination in a room your size. The sub-woofer is going to need to be quite powerful in order to overcome the room size.
