Amp or receiver for Pioneer sp-bs21

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hello! I would like to know what kind of amp or receiver can power pioneer sp-bs21 without any problem for $50-$100. cheaper is better. I am looking for a receiver in craigslist but I dont know which one can power the pioneer I am going to buy. I am from Las Vegas, Nevada.
I would really prefer paying less that's why I considered getting amp like Dayton Audio DTA-1, but I am also not sure if that is enough to drive the speakers. I would be using it for my desktop. mainly for gaming and music.

Is the Dayton Amp enough for the speaker? If so, I'll get it. I have some issue buying stuff from craigslist but if you guys can show me a good receiver, why not.

Thank you!

The DTA-1 will drive them, just not very loud at farther distances.

The DTA-100 would have no problems driving them though.

So ohm matches? Sorry. Not really good with audio. Im scared smoke starts to appear. So for a bedroom this pioneer and dayton amp is good enough? And there would be no problem plugging them to my pc? Thank you

The impedance of the speakers are 6 ohms which is the lowest the DTA-100 amp can handle. Impedance changes with frequency and a few other variables.

The lower the impedance of a speaker, essentially makes the amp work harder in a sense.

It's a great setup. I really liked mine. It comes with everything you need to plug into your PC, well except for speaker wire.

how about this Pyle PTA2 Mini 2x40W Stereo Power Amplifier. Will this work with the Pioneer speaker? Or Sony SS-B3000 is better?
