    I currently have a very old Pioneer tuner in my bedroom that is 125w X 2 still hooked to the original huge floor standing speakers. I never listen to it at louder than a quarter of it's volume. I'm thinking about replacing my Bose Acoustimass 6 speaker set-up in my home theater and I was wondering since they are only rated at a max of 100 watts each if I would blow them by using them with the tuner in my bedroom?

    I thought I had read that it was actually good to get an amp that was rated more watts than the speakers since under powering is often the culprit with burning out speakers. and unless you keep the amp at full volume you are nefver sending out the full wattage anyway.

    Thanks!
