I wouldn't worry about the MAX wattage rating anyway. When a speaker mfg rates a speaker's max wattage is only for peaks or split second bursts of power. By no means does that mean you should pick an amp based on PEAK or MAX ratings of a driver. When pairing an amp with drivers the only thing you should match are the RMS ratings of the amp and the speakers.
