I'm going to be using a 150-6000 Hz set of tweeters instead of speakers & a 42-200 Hz compact subwoofer instead of a regular one. The tweeters are new top of the line Neo10 Planar Transducers that have mid-range & the compact subwoofer Jamo Sub 800 has knobs for level, phase & cut-off. The reason I want an amp instead of a receiver is because I listen to really grimey/grungey music like dubstep & want to control the sound of the tweeters like I can already with the Jamo Sub 800's controls. The amps are in the link below.
This will end in tears. You are not starting in the right place. It would be like trying to do brain surgery on somebody without ever having cut open anybody's skin before, let alone having seen a brain before. Not only are you missing vital components, but you need a good deal of knowledge for this sort of thing to be executed with any amount of satisfaction.
Get a amp that is made for high fidelity home use. The amps you list aren't for that purpose. You need an amp that is built for your intended purpose....

I'm not trying to rain on your parade there. But are you familiar with speaker design? Exotic designs are best left up to those that have the skill (and money) to tweak these things out.
That NEO tweeter is really only functional between about 1.5kHz and about 5kHz. You're going to have to dampen the top end or it's going to ring like a bell!!!! And below 1.5khz the SPL drops so low you are going to need a graphic equalizer to MAYBE???? get enough juice to it to hear it. Below 1khz it's not really even playing anymore.
If you insist on building your own I would look into a graphic equalizer, SPL meters, etc...
