Stick with the Vegas.
Look for a power amp that can supply a good amount of power.
The speakers are rated for 300 watts so just don't go to far over that to avoid damaging the speakers.
Those Cerwin Vegas are rated for 103db sensitivity at 1 watt/1 meter.
Every ~10db is double the perceived volume and it takes 10x the wattage to achieve that added 10db.
So the average home speaker at ~90db sensitivity would need over 10x the power to reach the same volume as the Vegas at 103db sensitivity.
I believe there's a bit more to it if you delve into specific frequencies, but for the most part those Vegas should be what your looking for.
Just make sure they are in good condition before you buy them. They are popular speakers for loud volume usage, and therefore the drivers may not be in the best sounding shape.
