    Jeff,
    Most class A amplifiers do not have any headroom to speak of. I would be concerned that this amp maybe a little too small for this application. Clipping, and distortion is the number one killer of loudspeakers. If you like it "LOUD" then look for amp that has a power rating of 150 Watts per channel to drive the components.
    For the MM120 we recommend using a amplifier that has a bridged power rating of 500 to 1000 Watts and install it in a .88
    cubic feet sealed enclosure or the bandpass enclosure that we posted on our website. Click on "Toolbox" then on the MM120
    Bandpass enclosure.
    If you need some asistance with amplifier recommendations,
    let us know and we will be glad to help.

    Happy Amp Hunting!!
    Kim
