Those speakers have a pretty high sensitivity so you can get pretty loud with receiver power. If you want to go crazy loud then an external amp is needed. The manual doesn't list a rms power rating only 500w peak so I would guess a 250w amp will be ok. You will need a preamp if you decide on a external amp. You can use a receiver as a preamp just make sure it has pre-outs.

 

At 10ft away with just 50w, you could theoretically get 102db at the listening position. Any decent receiver should be able to put out at least 50w

The calculator uses an anechoic number for calculating the loss over distance. In a room the loss is likely to be about 2 db. So a 10-15 watt amplifier is all that is needed to reach that spl. For the OP, virtually any amplifier made will do the job for you. Amplifier power is not an issue in your case.
