Receiver to power Cerwin Vega VS-150s

Feb 20, 2018
Hello all, I was recently given a pair of cerwin vega vs-150 speakers from a friends dad who was moving and I took them without really knowing what I was getting. After reading reviews and specs I now realize I know NOTHING about home audio! I need to get a receiver to power these beasts but I don't want to spend 500+ to get something decent. Can anyone recommend a good budget friendly(sub $200) receiver that I could use for these? General specs for these speakers is below.

DIMENSIONS: 35.5" x 18" x 18.6" (H X W X D)
