    I would recommend this
    But any amp with about 50W or more would work good, just make sure it can drive 4 ohm loads.

    If I bought this amp would my reciever need to be set at 4 ohms? My speakers are 8 ohms and that is what my receiver is set at right now.

    If you use the Sub(LFE) out on your receiver, you don't need to worry about the receiver's impedence because the Sub AMP will take care of that.

    I hope this helps.

    Impedance only applies to the amp section. Since the amp I suggested is rated for 4 ohms it will drive it no problem. You just have to worry about the speakers hooked up directly to your receiver. If they are 4 ohms, switch it to 4, if they are 8 switch it to 8, it's that simple.
