is it safe to run these with a 200W/ch amplifier?
Yes. I'm using Studio 40's and Studio 20's with a Parasound HCA2205at without a problem. It makes these speakers really sound great. This amp is 220watts per channel so go for it.
Being the Studio 20's Max Amplified range is 150 Watts, you may run into a problem. 200 seems a tad high for these small bookshelfs...
I've been running them with a Cinepro 200w amp and they sound sweet.. Mind you, I run them set to small and crossed over at 80hz!
Too little power is always worse for a speaker than too much. The only way you realize +200 watts of actual power to those speakers is if you were trying to fill a small auditorium:b Of course you must be honest with your listening preferences. Generally 100 watts constant will be VERY LOUD
I run my 20's with 170 per channel. They never struggle. Unless you are watching a movie past reference level and there is a huge explosion, they probably will never even sound strained.
