Powering Klipsch RB-81 II ... Denon 3313CI enough or should I be looking at an external amp sub $400ish?

Pairing the RB-81's with the SVS SB-13 Ultimate and would like to have the RB-81's keep up at higher listening levels.

I understand that the 3313CI's rated at 135WPC and the Behringer A500/Emotive/Crown is rated similarity (sub $400), but an AVR's power will be different that an amp's power rating, but will there be enough of a difference to hear a difference? I would prefer not to spend more than $400 on an external amplifer.

Klipsch speakers tend to be very efficient. Run your system using only your AVR. If you find that the speakers are playing cleanly and keeping up with the SB13-Ultra (not Ultimate) at louder volumes, you don't need an external amp.
