    quick question for the wrong section

    If i have two floor speakers each that can handle 110 watts and a home receiver that is 100 watts per channel. The speakers should be able to handle everything the receiver can throw at them right. Also, if i hook up a RCA to headphone input into the receiver for playing MP3's through my laptop, does that add any wattage?

    thanks all...sorry for posting in the wrong area but no one answers in home audio

    that is rather incorrect...

    even if they are both 100watts rms, the speakers, and the amplifier...

    if the amplifier is turned up will into distortion, the speakers will very likely cook.

    well, if the amplifier is 100watts rms, and the speakers are 100watts max, they'd probably be dead by that stage anyway

    just play it as loud, and distorted as ya want, you gotta take risks sometimes...

    For many receivers, the 100 WPC rating is highly optimistic...

    volume I guess...

    clarity is good... mids and highs keep up with the bass pretty well...

    just overall volume...

    does mid 130dBs on the TL...
