I searched this and saw many topics on it. So sorry for asking again... But I have seen a million different answers and would like to come up with a set answer. Is under powering speakers bad for them? I have been told way too many different things.
I do not have my speakers hooked up to an amp right now and they are 100W rms speakers. I figure each speaker is only truly getting about 22W from the HU. That is underpowering them by a lot. If I turn my volume up like this, they start to distort and sound like they could blow. I don't take the risk by turning it up any higher but if I do, will something go wrong? And is under powering speakers actually bad for them? When I get my new amp installed and running about 50 more watts to each speaker, will I be alright?
