Hello,
I have a older Yamaha AX-596 100rms 145 max. I was wanting to replace my Athena AS F2s with Cerwin Vega CLS-215 my question is this amp enough power for these speakers or will i need to add an amp.If i need to add is there one that's not terribly expensive.

According to this review the CV's are very easy to drive, so your Yamaha integrated amp should be fine.

Give it a try and if you find you need more power then add an amp. I certainly wouldn't buy an amp first w/o testing the speakers with just your Yamaha.
