with those lights i dont see them being able to support the life of an amenone long term. i dont suggest getting an anemone anytime soon anyways, esp if you just looking for it for your clowns to host in which they dont always do. they will host what they feel comfort in and that can include corals, powerheads or liverock.
what exactly is your entertainment area like? i dont like putting my tanks next to any speakers esp. subs AND at the same time the bright lighting of a reef will distract the room during movie time and even just watching tv ( which thankfully i dont waste my time with )
for corals, soft corals would be good under PC lighting. toadstool leather, gsp, pulsing xenia, zoanthids.. no SPS, no clams, no anemones with PCs. honestly unless the look of an all in one tank is what your looking for you could take the time and build something nicer if you pieced it together. again 14 gallons + rock doesnt leave you with much fish space and a pair of clowns would put you at a stocked level. your still going to need something for water flow ( powerhead ) something to test for salinity ( refractometer - check ebay ) liquid test kits for cal, alk, mag, ammonia, nitrITE, nitrATE, pH, at the minimum along with something for temp too ofcourse. then youll need alk, cal and mag to dose, cant forget RO/DI water and a salt mix. research before buying is key.
