This will be my receiver

My question is, is this receiver powerful enough to be able to run these speakers, and if not am I able to buy a separate amp that can plug into the receiver so it is powerful enough?
Please help

The VSX-60 would be enough for me but I guess it depends on how loud you want to listen. That receiver doesn't have pre-outs so you can't hook up an amp to it. The CV 215's have a 3 db higher effeciency rating so they will play louder with the same power then the 15's.

The first speaker is 6 ohm with a 93 sensitivity, the second is a 95 sensitivity. Those are both very efficient speakers, meaning that receiver, or any normal receiver, will allow you to go deaf. So you're good.
The VSX-60 does not have pre-outs (except for the sub and zone2), so you cannot connect another amp to it. But again, there's no reason to do so.
