    You'll be fine. Just use you're head.

    Right now the amplifier I have is 250w per channel. In one of my previous setups I was running a 370w per channel amplifier on my frontstage.

    those things don't need that much power. Plus, there so good of a speaker they will get plenty loud off 100-150 watts.

    just set the gains a little lower
