That Scintilla thread doesn't appear to be forthcoming, so here's a pic. I think its good enough to do them justice. On Townshend stands. Note the fatter bottom lip that makes them look a lot better I think.

Justin, my issue has never been so much the need to hive off one's own power station. It's whether with all that power, these can come alive at low to moderate volumes. If the juice has to flow, and they only gel at "realistic" volumes, and sound insipid lower down, that would be a challenge.
Stuff like the bigger diamond tweeter/ceramics mids Kharmas/Talon Firebirds and ML Prodigies, that I once nearly considered buying, just don't fly lower down to my ears even with 500-1000W.
Yeah you have to wonder how hot the amp runs. My class A Luxman might get hotter TBH but even that is nothing compared to my 211s - touch those with a clench for 1 second (and yours I suspect) - go to hospital!
