Is 40 Watts Enough For Fluance Bipolar Surrounds?

Is 40 Watts Enough For Fluance Bipolar Surrounds?

Thinking about getting the Amphony wireless speaker 1700 kit and an additional amp/receiver. Each amp/receiver is rated at 2x40watts (I think that means it can only put out 40 watts per speaker). One each will drive a Fluance Signature Hi-Fi Bipolar Surround Sound Speaker. I'm using these speakers as side surrounds in a 5.1 setup, in a fairly large room.

Is that wattage enough?

The Fluance specs say power handling is 30 - 120 Watts RMS, so I think I'm good. I would get the Amphony 1800 kit which has 2x80watt amps but those are back ordered until March.

This is a forum for specialized speakers from finland that last a lifetime.

this is our speaker to room volume chart:

you can look up the wattage of the speakers to reverse-engineer that.
