Taking stupid pills doesn't fly well, here.
The problem we see may be self-limiting.

So many questions, for you, I have.
That receiver is legit. I had one.
The power output is rated at rms, not peak, as all new garbage is.
I'd use the internal amp, fuck that yellow tooth shit.
As stated above (gustafson), you have to pay attention to impedance (ohms). It's resistance. (pm me if you'd like to understand this better, as with series or parallel wiring, you can cheat)
If I remember correctly, I didnt skim that spec link, it's rated for 8 ohm speakers, but is stable down to 4ish. That's basically unheard of, for it's time.
So without boring you with alot of bullshit, the lower the impedance, the more power is output, as long as the amp is stable at that impedance. That receiver gives you SOOOOO many options for speakers.
I've built more than a few car systems that have been in magazines, and some home systems that cost more than all my houses, and the dudes I've worked with have forgotten more than I'll ever know.

... The audio purists will lecture you all day long about the advantages of their favorite speaker wire which is made with pure gold (or better) and costs millions of dollars an inch due to some highly proprietary process. But I have actually conducted BLIND tests with such wires against regular lamp cord as purchased at the local hardware and THEY can not reliably tell any difference. They then claim the test was not fair for some reason. But it wasn't. They just did not know which was which before hand so they were just guessing. ...
They are still making music in this century.
There are still a few breeders left that can carry a tune without injuring or killing any auto tunes.

The wings of destiny can be broken.
Lamp cord is good. Watch the ribbed side for polarity when connecting. This does matter. You do not want one woofer going the opposite direction of the other.
For the shop I just went to Home Depot and bought 50 and 100 foot extension cords and cut the ends off as it was even lower cost for the long runs and no need to "hide" the wiring.
Have a big stereo system rack at home not turned on for well over a decade plus with all this new stuff we have now.Works well. Lasts a long time.
My only "concession", "back in the day" was to buy a larger gauge, more long-lived jacket, and the "all-over tinned" flavour of zip cord!
I did not mention speaker impedance before, but it is an important factor. And it is not just the lower, the louder.
What is important is that the impedance be properly MATCHED. The cable from the amplifier to the speaker(s) is what is known in electrical circles as a TRANSMISSION LINE. It is no coincidence that the amplifiers are rated in their power output. This has been so from the days before stereo, not to mention four, four, six, eight channel audio and their fractional channel bass. And there is a very basic principal that says that ANY electrical/electronic transmission line will transmit a maximum amount of power when the SOURCE and DESTINATION impedances are the same. That simply means that an amplifier with an eight Ohm output will transmit the most energy to an eight Ohm load (speaker). And, by the way, that maximum amount of energy is 50% of the energy being consumed by the amplifier's output stage. The other 50% becomes heat in that output stage and is the reason for the heat sinks usually found there. ........................
This is a huge example of "overthinking".
You have 170watts or so of output, which the amplifier can deliver. Get some speakers which you like the sound of, and which can take your 170 watts.
Check the speaker impedance, and be sure the amp can deliver full power into the speaker impedance.
Get some 16 or 18 ga zip cord for connecting the speakers, enough to reach from amp to speakers.. Try not to make that distance more than 25 feet or so. The longer you make it, the bigger the wire should be. System design DONE.
There is no speaker output in the world that is a transmission line, nor is it "matched". That's "techie-bunkum", pure and simple.
It's not a transmission line for the same reason that 1" of RG-58 is not a "transmission line"... Because the wavelengths used are much much longer than the line, and the characteristics of a transmission line do not develop.
As for the "matching"........which is not done.......
Have you ever heard of the term "damping factor" (DF) as applied to speakers?
That term is a measure of how much LOWER the amplifier output impedance is than the speaker impedance.
It is usual to have a DF of at least 20, meaning the amplifier output is 20x lower impedance than the speaker. A DF of 100 is not unknown.
By the way, while "matching" is sort-of done for open-back guitar speakers and amps, you would really hate how it sounds if the speakers were actually matched by the amplifier. Speakers are optimized for a low source impedance.
So much for matching...... and transmission line action.
Thought you might like to update your play list.

All of them currently active and interpreting the better of the past, while writing, arranging, producing and performing new material.
You have taste THAT discerning?
More eclectic and appreciative of the few who can stand up to a mic and emote an exceptional performance without a flashy distracting show.
WTF are you still doing ... hostage.. in the Kaliphoneyah, SSR?
Just an optimist hoping for sanity, common sense and self determination to come back into fashion. There is still a chance our "Leaders" will get out of the way and allow it to happen.
As to "surrender monkey"? France had foolish leaders with 3-day delay HQ to field. That did not stop a valiant front line from bringing a serious measure of pee on "Schneller Heinz' Guderian's head - nor rear-guarding the extraction at Dunkirk the hard way.
don't confuse "hi-fi" and "sound" . they aren't the same , and shouldn't be confused.
in a shop environment, you probably want "Sound", which implies volume, clarity , dispersion ....PA type
stuff . it doesn't have to sound balanced and accurate as much as it needs to be listenable and un-distorted from most positions in the room ..
"hi-fi" could be a pair of 300B monoblocks pushing 5 WPC into a pair of Focal 6.5" fullrangers in TL
enclosures . solo cello, Django trio, mozart chamber music , beatles .. stunning...you can almost see the music.
great for the home listening room .... probably won't make it over that cnc lathe and 4" carbide shell mill. since you are entering the world of public address- go the music- store route .
you will get much more bang per buck with self powered pa speakers, and run the thing mono or stereo.
you probably won't notice in the din of tools.
