home audio cerwin vega speakers and what to push them with

So I want some quality loud bass. I plan on spending about a grand, and I was wondering what i should use to drive cerwin vega VE-15 15" 3-Way Towers

requency Response: 26 Hz - 20 kHz
# Peak Power: 400 watts
# Sensitivity (1w/1m): 95 dB# 5 1/4" Midrange with Fiber Impregnated Cone
# 1 1/4" Treated Silver Mylar Tweeter with Ferro Fluid
# 15" Cast Frame High Excursion Woofer
# Protection: Self-Reseting, PTC (tweeter), Fuse (woofer)
# Elegant Black-Ash Enclosure
# Dimensions (HxWxD): 16.6 " x 20.8 " x 36"
# Weight: 80 lbs.

would this amp work? would I need additional equipment?

You can dive the Cerwins with ANYTHING you want!!!!!
The Gemini makes low cost DJ gear, it's good for the money.
Here is a link that includes Gemini and other amps in same price range.
A few of years ago I did a low cost PA system and used a couple of the amps from this link, they are still working and sound very good.
You will need a preamp or mixer, back to my question what are you planing to use them for? John

I plan on getting a synth and tables to play with, and attaching everything to my comp, so basically a tight media center. Im home alone like all the time, so thats why im going with the 15s. will it be easy to connect everything together? Im new to the pro/home audio scene haha. will I have to spend a lot of money on adapters and special cables?
thanks for the reply!

I see, then maybe a small mixer should be added.
