You need extended monitors for the size that are designed to be an easy load to drive (hard to find), like Fritz Carrera for example. Those would be my choice. I’ve heard these do quite well off less than 10 w of good quality tube power. Otherwise try throwing a good quality high current modern Class D amp this time at the Manis or similar more current hungry smaller monitors with good bass extension (not so hard to find). New KEF R3 stakes out a reasonable compromise ie very good bass extension but easier to drive than many. I could live with any of these three easily with the right amp behind them. Manis would be most demanding by far but pays off once fed properly.
