    I am considering jbl s38 @ 175 w/speaker. I am also considering a 200/channel amp. I assume this is too much power for the jbl's? Would it be better to go with either different speakers or different amp?

    It'll be fine, as long as you don't crank it up too high. At normal listening volumes, you're putting out a few 10s of watts to a speaker, so it doesn't matter how much your amp is capable of putting out. Just don't take these to a party where someone might turn the volume all the way up.
