does it say it's rated for 175watts?
no they are only rated for like 70 watts rms. just wondering if anyone has thrown more power to them. I read about a lot of people putting way more power to their components than what they are rated at. I know some people have done 100 watts but how high can i go?

I have seen them running a TRUE 80-100 watts for long periods with no problems. Those old XR's were good speakers. Just keep the really notes crossed over out of the drivers and you most likely will not overheat them. Here is JL's link to them:

If the question is can you use them on an amplifier rated for 175w per channel....... Yes, you can as long as you use your head.
Nothing wrong with a little extra headroom. I have 250w per channel on my front speakers right now.
