I d say definitely. I believe it is as hard to drive as the two, so yes speaker amp would definitely help.
If the speaker amp is under 150 wpc, the adapter shouldnt be necessary, but if you were planning something with higher wattage, then yes, absolutely.
A cable which terminates with either the banana plugs (for the speaker taps) is said to be best, but using the 1/4 output of the speaker amp should do too.
I am sure the Mini-X is a sure bet. If you want to try what speaker amps are like but want something affordable yet very good, try the Mini and see how you like it. You can always upgrade to a higher wattage amp if you like it. Its a good start definitely :)
Hope this helps!
Also you dont need an adapter for it as it is "only" 50 wpc
