In preparing to make my move to upgrading to the LSI15's i'm researching amps. I've already had some great advice given on this forum, and I know there's a lot of good amps out there by Adcom, Rotel, Outlaw, etc.

I also know the LSI15's want power. My question is, since the LSI15's are 4ohm speakers, is the amp wattage @ 4ohm the important number to look at? If I see a "125 watts @ 8ohms, 200 watts @ 4 ohms", is that sufficient, or do I want to be looking at the wattage at 8ohms when making my decision?

This is probably a dumb question, but there's a huge difference in price between "200watt @ 8ohms" and "200 watt @ 4 ohms" amps.

Thanks for any tips.
