Default Home Audio (i can't choose)

So i've narrowed it down to 3 recievers. But i don't know which one will work best for the sound i want. Speaker Breakdown:

Original 5.1 surround speakers
2 Tower Speakers
1 Tower holds 2 15's, 1 5 1/4 and a horn tweeter.
So thats 4 15's total. Which i want to use for bass and music.

Here's the 3 recievers i 've narrowed it down too

Technical Pro RXB33 Home Receiver

Amazon.com: Pioneer VSX-920-K 7.1 Home Theater Receiver: Electronics

Amazon.com: Sony STR-DN1010 7.1-Channel A/V Receiver: Electronics

Price isn't the question. The question is which will give me the most BANG for those 15's plus the surround sound for movies.
Thanks for reading and helping out.

Onkyo TX-NR708



smacks the shit out of those, in just about every category......


when you look at receivers, make sure they rate there power output WITH ALL CHANNELS DRIVEN!



the ones you listed, are companies that lie to your face about actual output. they may say 100 X 7, but that's not the case. they test them with two channels driven only. they see it put out 100 watts, so they say all channels will put that out....

Exactly!!! Now you see my confusion and frustration. I'm not spending $1500 on a receiver that says 120x7. Won't do it... but i need to upgrade the receiver i have now. These 15's need POWA!

The Back of that Onkyo TX-NR708 made my head hurt lmao... i'd spend 3 days wiring!!

actually its really easy to wire that unit!

also look into Yamaha and Outlaw receivers for rated power output.

I have a Harmon Kardon AVR something or another, my front speakers are towers with 5 6" midbass's and a sidefiring 12" woofer and it slams em.

But for running tower like u got dont go with a reciever, ur gonna need a preamp/amp.. ur normal reciever wont produce over 65 true rms.

My receiver is a 7.1 Onkyo and it's very nice, and incredibly loud, lol.

Also...I agree with Raptor. You need a separate amp to power the sub(s) if that is what you intend to use them for. the ".1" output in almost every receiver is NOT powered. I think parts express is having some sales on Dayton plate amps.

he means that each tower speaker has 2 15" woofers in them.

Think of it like this:
A reciever is like a car audio HU.. they power most speakers fine but when u start getting up to components, large midbass speakers, ect u need to run them off of a seperate amp to provide them with the power they need to sound good.

a speakers rms power rating means more than just what the speaker will take power wise constantly... if u under power them to much they cant make a smooth transition from one frequency to another which effects sound quality, clarity and robustness (bass included)

look into something like a Crown amp

wait ur not talking about those cheapo cabinet speakers u can get at Rent A Center with the 2 15's per cabinet are you? lol

To be honest i don't know what these are capable off. Might just be some funky pups for all i know. I got them in a trade for free and there practically brand new. But for now they sound good. If they happen to be cheapies i'll buy new subs and use these cabinets. There solid wood either way. But i agree... an amp does sound better. I already have a Sony 5.1 receiver for the surround. Just not sure what rms i could go with for the subs...
