im lookin at the polk audio db6750's, 100w rms @4 ohms. I was wondering if the polk audio momo carbon c300.2 amp, 150w rms x2 @ 4ohms would be too much power for these speakers?

Its better to over power the speakers then to under power them

It is more difficult to blow a set of speakers becuase of more power, then it is to underpower them. Underpowering them will cause the amp to start to clip earlier and faster.

thank you very much. i always thought that overpowering the speakers even a little hurt it. now i know. you guys are so smart. i wish my friend would have talked on this forum before he bought his system.

I have an infinity kappa perfects 6.1 and I got a Hifonics amp to run it, is it ok to over power my component systems cause my amp is running at 170rms per channel and the perfects 6.1 only has 100wrms?

underpowering will only cause the amp to clip if you set the gain so it can.

Clipping is a product of user error, not under-powering.

But 150w on a quality set of 100w speakers shouldn't be an issue - as long as (surprise, surprise) you set the gain correctly and use common sense with the volume knob.
