I have a pair of 800 watt RMS @ 8ohms.

 

 

A lot of amps I see push much less than 800 watts @ 8ohms. Do I simply need a very high powered amp to be able to push RMS @ the 8 ohms?

Are these the speakers? http://www.amazon.com/Podium-Pro-Speakers-Karaoke-E1525SET2/dp/B006GFO7WK

The speaker is 8 ohm, 800 watt RMS 1600 max. What specs do I have to look for in a compatible speaker? It has to be the same resistance but how will a difference in wattage affect the speaker? I am new to speaker repair, thanks!

How much power you need depends on the size of the venue. The power rating is a maximum. it has nothing to do with what amp you need.
