Re: Is this setup too much power?
DO IT! There are several advantages to running your speakers on an oversized amp. First of all your amp will not be having the POO ran out of it, this will increase it's lifespan considerably as mentioned by WickedWitt. Amp manufactures measure distortion at rated power, so you should be getting very clean power by running less than rated. With more power you will not have to use loudness or boost the bass/trebble as if you were way underpowered (lots of Headroom). And if you change setups in the future you have more options. One thing my competition SQ buddys do is run twice the power needed to each speaker then you only run your amps 1/2 as hard.
