3 ohms speakers are not going to be good for a modern AV Receiver. That impedance is far too low. Better to get some more reasonable speakers in the 6 ohm to 8 ohm range.

You should not be using the Samsung speakers with the Yamaha receiver as they can cause damage to it especially if you crank up the volume due to the higher load they will impose on the amp. Also is the Samsung sub passive or active? If it is passive then that can not be used with an AVR either.

What do you mean by cranking it up too much? Is it sounding strained or bad?
i mean i have to turn volume too high to sound loud and my ps4 sounds very low compared to my media player when i watch movies.my speakers are 86db is this low?if i buy other speakers with 90plus db will sound better and louder?

Is the issue variable sound between sources? Or you feel the volume is turned too high? Or it us sounding bad? If the second one then do not worry what the dial says as long as it sounds ok. The sensitivity of the speakers is not great but not that bad either.
