It's really about if you like listening to a bunch of bass crazy music.

They're fine for most playback, but for the price I'd be expecting them not to overheat if doubled for HT or electronic music in larger listening rooms. I'm just playing devil's advocate a bit. You can go from one enclosure to 2, and if you make them nice shielded ones with enough heatsink to really use some power, the price isn't exactly going to be a huge argument. That is unless you want to start comparing nonsense speaker cables that cost as much as a Toyota Camry.

I know people like to balk at the costs of some enclosures, and some are simply "ordain" looking, but what is the alternative? Should designers use flexi-mats to mount 1.5kva transformers? You can just roll it up like a rug and put it in the closet when you aren't listening or use a class D during the summer?

The SCM100A pro is specced for 115dBa at 1m continuous. I would expect the amp pack to be able to support that without going phut or the thermal overload cutting in. Not aware of anyone trying this, but a lot of studios use them so they must be doing something right.

Not saying a case is not necessary, just saying its a fact of live that it ends up being a big chunk of the cost, moreso when the client wants audio jewellery. Integrate it into the speaker and a bit of bent tin can be used w hich is a lot cheaper.
