Default ideal amplifier power rating to match speakers

I'd like to build an amplifier to suit my set of two Jamo E680 speakers. They are each rated 6 ohm and 170/120W short term / long term power.

What power rating should I choose for the amp to allow full or near full utilisation of the power capabilities of these speakers whilst not blowing anything?
