Default 60watt x 2 into 6 ohm load amplifier

I have a set of Pioneer CS-C1000 speakers, they are rated for 60 watts at 6 ohms. They have a 3" tweeter and a 12" woofer. I have tried hooking these directly up to my PC but I can barely hear anything from them with the sound card maxed out.
I have tried looking for a car "style" amp to boost the sound but they all seem to be set for 4 or 2 ohm speakers and I would rather not risk buring up the amp due to to much resistance from the speaker and the home "style" amps I can find are multiroom 500+ watt models.
It does work to hook the PC up to my stereo, but that would still leave this set of speakers unused and my Pioneer SX-2300 already has 2 sets hooked to it.
Are there any amps that will work good for my situation? If not how would I go about building one? It doesn't need to be 60 watts, thats just what the speakers are rated to handle and something more then 20 would be perfect.
