Hello,
how much power do i need for ripole bass with 2 each/channel. the ripole seems to lower 6 db as i can read in web.

That entirely depends on how loud you want to play... For Class D amps overhead in output does not make much of a difference. Traditional class A/B amps usually sound better with more power (more current and therefore better control I guess).

Cheers,

Now with Hegel h20, 2 x200 w in class AB is enough. I reply to me in order if anyone has the same doubt
In internet is said not to cut the ripoles higher than 200hz
Now i have raised the xover point of dipoles to 285 hz in LR 2 order, i have made some measurement but i dont find the resonances except in 460 hz

Should be more than enough...

It depends on the design...

What sort of crossover do you use? DSP?
