    We need to know what the RMS power rating on the speakers is...but I would say that you could probably run even more power (intelligently) and still be fine

    them rms on both speakers are about 75-80 but to run all 4 speakers do i need a 4 channel amp or 2 . i get confused if it says RMS: 2x 80 does that mean oly speakers can run at 80 watts or 2 channels meaning 4 speakers

    You will need a four channel if you want balance and fader control in your system. If the speakers are rated at 80 watts you won't hurt them with 100 watts per channel. If your amp is rated at 100x4 at 4ohms it will give you 100 watts on four channels with a 4ohm speaker on each channel. If the same amp is rated at 200x4 at 2ohms you will either need a 2ohm speaker on each channel or two 4ohm speakers wired in parallel on each channel to get 200 watts on each channel.
