Do hissy/crackly soundtracks damage speakers?

    Well, I've finally got around to hooking up my Playstation 1 to my Denon receiver. For the most part, the results have been glorious[​IMG] However, my vastly superior setup (Denon AVR-1705 receiver, JBL E80s for L/R fronts, JBL EC35 for center, and JBL E10s for surrounds) to my old stereo TV has revealed limitations in some of the video game soundtracks. For example, sometimes explosions will have a hiss or crackle after them. I KNOW that this is the soundtrack (the same sounds showed up sometimes even on my old TV). I am not overdriving my receiver and it's not clipping (the games tend to play high volume, and I can play them pleasingly loud at far less volume than the average movie). Would this hiss and cracking -- an inherent artifact of these soundtracks -- damage my speakers in any way? Thanks!

    Can't see how unless they're at much greater volume levels than the soundtrack. More likely to damage your head with the headache I'd anticipate!
