Is my receiver enough?

I know very little when it comes to receivers/amps etc etc

I have a denon X1300W powering 2X Q Acoustics 2050i towers and the matching center.

My question is, can I add 2 Ultimax 18's with the Inuke 6000 DSP amp in the martySub design? I am planning on getting 4 more speakers to fill the 7 but didn't know if I needed something more powerful for these subs.

Sorry for the newb question, I wont be building these for a while, but I like to have a plan of attack.

The subs are driven by the iNUKE, not the Denon, so there's no problem there.

The avr will not be powering the subs, the I Nuke will do that.

Any vented design for Dayton Audio Ultimax 18 inch maxes out at 2000 watts. Any further, it will distort. Also it requires a high-pass filter at around 16 hertz for 4th order linkwitz-riley or 21 hertz for 2nd order butterworth. The high pass filter depends on the tuning frequency. Use WinISD or any simulation program to figure out what high pass filter to use, so it doesn't damage the woofer. Since the Inuke 6000 DSP has 3100 watts for each output, be careful with the volume. Though consumer audio level (unbalance) versus professional (balance) is 1:6 dB.

The Inuke 6000 has been tested and puts out around 2000 watts RMS a channel. It also has a limiter you can set.

Datasheet for the Inuke 6000 saids it outputs 3100 watts per channel. The Ultimax 18 inch can handle up to 2000 watts.
