Hi Guys,

I am planning to purchase a Floor standing speaker - Pioneer sp fs52, mainly to play music and a little bit of movies too. I already have a small Onkyo home theater system HTS-22HDX. Is it possible to connect the pioneer speaker to this Onkyo system without damaging either the speaker or receiver. Thanks and hoping for a quick response.

The specs are as below :

Simply NO. Not enough power to drive a floor stander.
Thanks for your prompt reply. So I would need to buy an av receiver or stereo receiver. Right? Would there be substantial difference in sound quality for music with stereo receiver with this budget pioneer speakers than using an av receiver?

Adding a FS to this amp may be an overkill as tuff already explained..

You may consider upgrading / replacing existing (full range) speakers..

The existing Onkyo speaker are 80dB efficient and .. If you can upgrade to a speaker (Bookshelf) with >= 87dB, this will ease the load on the amplifier.. You can also integrate a more powerful active subwoofer which has high level inputs & outputs with your existing AVR, which is inbuilt in the subwoofer..
