Why do you feel the need to buy an amp also? The receiver you buy should be able to power those speakers fine.

Oh I misunderstood you I didn't realize you meant for the sub. Is this the sub you're referring too? [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Dayton-SUB-120-Watt-Powered-Subwoofer/dp/B000C9NV78"]Dayton 120[/ame]

If so it's already powered and doesn't require an amp.
