Default Alternatives to the DTA-2

Hello everyone,

This is around my 6th revision of my project. I want to build a killer outdoor iPhone dock with loads of power and battery life. I'm wanting to build a system with 4 Dayton Audio PA130-8 5-1/4" Full Range Drivers, with 4 Vifa BC25SC55-04 1" Square Frame Tweeter

I'm basically going for huge range, a typical awesome lake/volleyball/beach boombox. I've poured over the Boominator thread and also that white cabinet project from PartsExpress (Can't find it right now)...

The trouble is, I can't find any Dayton Audio DTA-2 Amps. I have purchased a Shure 2x100 Class T TK2050 Amp and i THINK it's pretty sweet. But I can't use that with the 8 Ohm speakers, correct? Are 8 Ohm speakers more efficient with a battery powered rig?

Ugh.. soo many questions.. I'm learning sooo much. But more and more questions and options keep popping up.

Thanks for anything you guys can do to help.

The listing for that product mentions 8Ohm use.

High Output Power:
30W @ 6Ω, < 1% THD+N
40W @ 8Ω, < 3% THD+N
100W @ 4Ω, < 10.0% THD+N
It looks as though it would be fine.
