I was wondering about "recommended wattage" for speakers from the amp. Is there any damage that occurs if I hook up a high current amp[ 250 watts and 60 amps ] to smaller speakers. Some of the best speakers I have heard in my price range are bookshelf or monitor size. The problem my amp is large but I no longer have room for larger speakers. Will this cause damage to the amp? I rarely play anything over 35% of maximum. Do the speaker receive any damage from to much current. Should I buy the 300$ Wharfdale 10.1 and just use them till they catch fire or will they be fine if I keep the volume low. This might be audiophile 101 stuff but I thought I would throw it out there. The amp is a Parasound A21.
