They are rated for 180 watts at 8 ohms I believe. I attempted to run 200 ways through them and the amp cut out on me. I run them at 100 watts and had to turn the bass all the way down so I didn't make the neighbors mad.

believe it or not im using 50 watts per channel. but its the onkyo tx8255 awesome transformer and high current. it delivers big time. not sure what your application is for these speakers. but make sure whatever receiver you are going with has a great transformer and high current. i bought the speakers and receiver through amazon. best purchase ever!!! hope this helps
