    ive got 2 of these soon to be my tower speakers, and i am going to get another pair with the separate tweeter soon, and was wondering a good 4 channel amp to get to run these?? i dont want to spend alot, but im not going to buy any lightning audio if you pick up my drift. please and thank you Smile

    P.S. can anyone suggest what i should run these polks at?? i know they are RMS rated for 100 with a peak 180, but i dont want to have my amp overheat, so i dont want to push anything TOO much...

    what i am looking at right now is one of these 2

    OR


    Kicker KX350.4 - 4 Channel Amplifier

    what you guys think??

    hopefully i will try and push these polks at about 80 W a piece, the only thing i worry about with them is that they are only rated to 60W X 4MS, so i dont want to blow anything

    thanks for reading my essay!
    cliffs: i need a relatively inexpensive amp which hopefully will not blow/overheat while eventually running 4 polk 6.5 tower speakers
