Will these work with Yamaha TSR 7850. Planning to buy for rear.

Asked by: VenkatDonepudi
Hi! Unfortunately, we do not have information about the Yamaha TSR 7850 receiver. However, the Arena 170 can handle from 20-200W of power at 8 ohms. As long as the receiver is within that wattage and ohm range, it will be compatible.

Hello, Im using these with my Pioneer Elite SC-63 receiver. I have 2 in the front and two in the rear. Im also using the Arena center 125C. Are they a good match with this receiver? Thanks, Mike

Asked by: Mike1976
Hi Mike. The Arena 170 Floor-standing speakers and the Arena 125C Center speaker are well matched with your Pioneer Elite SC-63 receiver. The speakers are rated at 8 ohms for their nominal impedance and your receiver is rated to output 125 watts at 8 ohms which is within the recommended amplifier power for the speakers. Should you have further concerns about your set-up, please feel free to contact us directly by submitting a case request at https://www.jbl.com/support-contact.html and the Customer Service Team will be more than happy to assist you. Thank you.

Will the Arena 170 work great with Harman Kardon HK 3770 receiver?

Asked by: Tooter
Hi! The Arena 170 will work with the receiver but you should not crank it all the way up because it could blow the speaker. The HK3770 is really powerful which gives out 240W on 2 channel Stereo.

I am considering the Arena 170s for my home theater front channels and may upgrade my center and surrounds to match. My question is for the bang for buck, is the Arena series the best? Should I be considering a 200 series system?

Asked by: drb32856
The Arena series are a great example of Cinema sound for the home. I use the 120's for my side surrounds so I know about the Arena sound quality. The Arena 170's paired with the Arena 120's, matching center and subwoofer of choice(subs don't have to be matched) will be a surround system that will deliver commercial Cinema surround sound at home. Providing you drive them with a receiver designed for multi-channel sound. Like....Yamaha, Sony, Marantz, etc., Your budget will dictate whether you buy the Arena or 200 series. Realistically speaking, the Arena series with a good sub-woofer, will blow away the majority of listeners. ~ peace
