A couple questions about some Athena speakers

Ok, i don't know much about speakers and stuff so i have a few questions that i know you guys can help me with.
I have the Onkyo HT-770 (i think that was the model #) HTIB and i want to upgrade the speakers. I am looking at these: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1118840369331

My first question is will these be good for the two rear surrounds or are they mainly for the R and L front channels?

Second question: my receiver is 130 watts per channel and the above mentioned speakers are max 125w. Can i still use them or is that not a good idea since my receiver is 130?

My advice would be to listen to them yourself to see if you like them. Bookshelf speakers could be either mains or surrounds but before you use them as mains I would make sure you like them and that your sub is up to the task of handling the bass. A bookshelf speaker will be weak in the bass area.
