If you're really on a budget and want something quick and easy yet reliable that will match those speakers, you can consider using one low-power chip amp for each driver and design your own active crossover. So you'd build 6 incredibly simple amps and build some filters into the front-ends. But you might have to replace those neutrik connectors on the speakers with the 6-conductor variety. You might be able to bridge two chip amps to mono for one 15" driver if you think it's necessary. Start by looking at LM3886 amps.

Here it's easier to find a used Nady amp or some other unpopular brand for cheap on eBay. I saw a Nady yesterday with a buy-it-now price of $75.

If you have access to old unwanted used receivers (perhaps with bad front-end or bad tuner), you can salvage power supply and power amps sections for really cheap, and with active crossovers you might get away with anything > 100 watts per driver.

Ahuja Sound Solutions
Is this for concert/outdoor PA sound or personal use? Big difference.

PA speakers are designed for a specific purpose, Hi-Fi isn't one of them.

Any half decent Class AB or Class D amp will suit even the best PA speakers.
I agree 100% with your comment!
