First off, does that Panasonic have pre outs to connect an amp?

Also, you can probably drive those speakers with the Panasonic. They are highly efficient (they may also be a little boomy, if past listening experiences with CV speakers is a guide.)

Give it a shot. If you really want it loud, I would guess that the Panasonic is not going to get there, because that 1250 watts is highly misleading. It's probably more like 100 or 200 watts or something total.

If you need to hook up an amp to the Panasonic, and it has no pre outs, there are boxes to convert speaker level to line level.

As for amps, any old amp would do. A Behringer A500 is probably your cheapest option. Or look for deals on any 2 channel pro amplifier. Emotiva is also very reasonable, as amps go.

looks like there is some good deals on emotiva amps right now but what size amp should i get??

im pretty sure the Panasonic doesn't have any pre outs here is a view of the back

There are no preout on that system so you will not easily be able to add an external amplifier.

It seems like you are trying to build a system of mixed together parts. What exactly are you trying to do? You just bought the Panasonic system so maybe you can still return that or the CV's? Is this setup for Home Theater only? Instead of just throwing money at an amp explain what you want from this system. There may be a better direction to go that will get you better results.

Without preouts, you have no ability to externally amplify any signal from the Panny Home theater receiver, whether Music or HT. What you need is a different receiver or two channel setup for the CVs. Since they are very efficient as Michael pointed out, simply place them in the current system as your fronts. Your Music enjoyment will likely increase substantially over the system speakers with 2 channel.




My life is an open book...wish I could read it and have it make sense.
