Nice speaker package, but the receiver is under powered for the speakers. Would recommend something with at least 100wpc or more.

A receiver with true 75W RMS/channel will power almost any speaker within reason.
The world has this obsession w/ more = better. Therefore people tend to purchase receivers with more than enough power, and worry if the wattage is lower.

The sensitivity is not accurate and grossly overstated. You can see this on test bench results the sensitivity was overstated by about 5db https://www.soundandvision.com/co...test-bench

A $250 receiver would power these just fine. These are entry level Klipsch speakers.

True. There is not an audible difference between 75 watts and 100 watts. You'd have to go from 75 watts to 150 watts to get a 3db increase, which is about the smallest increase most people's ears can tell.
