Higher powered speakers with lower powered amp or Low powered speakers with higher power amp? Answered
There is a lot of conflicting information on this and I would like to know if my speakers/amp would get damaged.
Using 80w speakers and a 50w amp will there be any problems with running on full volume? And if I got a 100w amp with those 80w speakers will there be damage, even if I added a heat sink to the back where the voice coil is?
The speakers say 80w max but not really reliable as they are well priced Chinese speakers.
Audio Sensitivity: 88dB
Frequency Range (Hz): 100-20Khz
Rated output power: 2*50W+100W
Working voltage: DC18V to DC24V
The maximum output current: 4A
Frequency Response: 20Hz-20KHz
Can drive a 3-16 ohm speakers In the condition of rated voltage 24V
The sub woofer channel at rated voltage 24V state can drive 2-16 ohm sub woofer
Bass cut-off frequency independent regulation 20HZ-20KHZ adjustable
Very confusing conflicting info online with under rated amps causing clipping and over powered amps frying the speakers. Originally I thought it was only bad to over power the speakers.
Any help about what is worse, is appreciated.
