I have an Onkyo HTB which I have been using for the past 10 years (Bought from US), but now using in India. The receiver that comes along with it is HT-R560. I am planning to replace my current Front speakers (Front Speakers (SKF-560F L/R)) with tower. Now here is my concern.

For HT-R560, the spec is

75 Watts/Channel @ 8 ohms (FTC)

130 Watts/Channel @ 6 ohms (IEC).

My current Front Speaker (SKF-560F) has 8 ohm Impedance. and hence I believe the amplifier outputs only max of 75 watts.

I am planning to replace with, say Polk Audio T50 or Pioneer SP-FS52 or any tower which has 6 ohms so that my amplifier outputs 130 watts which I believe sounds better - right ?

In my HTB , it also comes up with a Sub woofer (SKW-560 Bass Reflex Powered Subwoofer) with a Max Power of 290 W RMS which gives a very good base as well.

Considering the above situation, Can you suggest me a tower speaker that can be used which will give 130 W RMS output (basically I can extract the Maximum power my receiver is capable of delivering), and Since I have a powered Sub woofer, what all should i consider in choosing a tower speaker like Mid range or tower with woofer or without etc etc.

Appreciate your help in advance.

Thanks
