If you're going passive you just need a two channel. If it's active you want you'll need four channels of amplification.

Use a healthy amount of power to make these speakers really come to life. If you're going active I would not recommend any less than 125rms per channel.

If you get the 2 chan you will be running it at 2 ohm stereo which will not give you much headroom, which might not be the best for sq. I would get the 4 chan, and then like mentioned you could be more versatile on your wiring/x-over options and you will have more control of the speaks at 4 ohm.
The PDX amps sound awesome BTW.

alpine pdx-2-150 will work well assuming you are using them in a passive set up.

if you're running them active, 125 watts into the tweets is a lot of power. Make sure you know what you're doing when setting it up. As far as 150 watts for the passive set up, shuldn't be a problem if you behave yourself with the gain and volume controls.
