So about a year ago I set about building a good home theatre for my home. I had a design that should work out pretty smooth. I bought an Onky HT-RC460 receiver, and have a Klipsch SW-110 subwoofer. And had a corresponding selection of Klipsch speakers to match. However to due to life i wasn't able to complete the speakers at the time. So now am setting out to complete my system again.

Now here is my question. Looking at the new Klipsch models, the R-26F says that it is 8 Ohms compatible at 100/400w. The Onkyo is 100 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz,
0.7%, 2 channels driven) at all channels and 80 W (8 ohms, 20 Hz-20 kHz, 0.7%, 2 channels driven, FTC)
125 W + 125 W (6 ohms, 1 kHz, 0.1%, 2 channels driven, FTC) at the from left and right channels. will this work together with no distortion? or risk of blowing the speakers. I think its the 8 ohms compatible that is throwing me off here. also i had selected the RF-52 II for the center channel. which is running out of stock. Should i get that one. or get the newer RC-62 II? on the rear channels I had selected the the RS- 52 II. but that was discontinued. is the Rp-240s a suitable replacement that would be compatible with the receiver? I know these are pretty specific. and i hope i didn't screw up in my calculations for the system. Thank you in advance for your help.

You should have no risk of blowing the speakers. The Onkyo has a max of 80Wpc with 8 ohm speakers. The Klipsch are rated to 100W. So max input is less than the rating. No Risk.

I think you need to go LISTEN to all the speakers you are interested in. Bring your own source material. Acoustic instruments or vocals you are very familiar with. You may find Klipsch to be too bright because of the horn drivers.
