Dear FMs,

I am looking for simple full-range woofers to drive with my Pioneer SX-434 amp. Specs of the amp are:

Power output: 15 watts RMS per channel into 8Ω (stereo)

Frequency response: 30Hz to 25kHz

Total harmonic distortion: 0.8%

Damping factor: 25

Speaker load impedance: 4Ω to 16Ω

I'm looking for 8" drivers but not sure of the wattage to go for. I am being offered 20w/40w/60w Sweton 4 Ohm woofers towards which I am leaning. Please help me select the correct match.

Thanks!
