    I'm looking up Sunn heads and for the most part, people recommend a Coliseum 300, but some suggest a Coliseum Slave. This appears to just be a power amp without the EQ. I'm not too knowledgeable when it comes to amps, what else do I need if I go with a Coliseum Slave? Could I use one at all?

    You just need a preamp to boost the signal level and provide tone control. (Speakers of course.)

    Correct, any power amp would need a preamp in front to make it work. Go with the head version, and all you need are speakers.
