I would like to upgrade the speakers that came with the DAV-FX10. The speakers that came with the unit are rated at "2.7ohms", not the usual 4, 6 or 8 ohms rating. Can I use 8ohms speakers instead? From experience, I know one can use speakers of a higher impedance than recommended but not lower. Am I right?
I just want to replace the 5 small speaker, not the subwoofer.
By the way, is the subwoofer an active unit or just a passive speaker?

Welcome to Agoraquest! You probably will be disappointed with the performance of your DAV-FX10 with 8 ohm speakers, because it is optimized for 3 ohm speakers. You are not going to want to here this, but your best bet is to replace the entire system with a component system (separate receiver, DVD player and speakers) when you can afford it.
