    It will work, yes, but that's way too weak of an AVR for those speakers. 22 pounds, 100 watts with two channels @ 6 ohm so 8 ohm rating is even less.

    Don't crank it. Ever.

    Red speaker post to red speaker terminal, black to black, L to R with speaker wire. Source (whatever you're hooking up) to input on the AVR with a pair of RCA interconnects.

    Thanks. What do you recommend to increase power?

    There isn’t anything you can do with that AVR to increase power. You would need to replace it with a different that has pre outs.
