The more power the better as far as amplifiers go, underpowering speakers causes clipping and burns up voice coils. Having a high power reserve means you have higher headroom for transients, with more power the amp will be able to handle transients better and will not be running at full output all the time in order to get desired volume levels, hence more headroom.
If you want to go with quality go with components, a seperate dedicated high quality amplifier such as a haffler, crest, etc., amps you find powering monitors in studios. It all depends what you want.

    Always make sure the output impedance of the amp and the input impedance of the speaker match.

    The more power the better as long as it's clean quiet power, that's where the quality of the amp comes in.
    No need to go overboard and get a 1000 watt amplifier or anything, the more power the better within reason, generally you want to have more power on tap than the loudest levels you listen to.
    Keep in mind subwoofers take a great deal more power to drive than high frequency drivers.
