can any one just confirm this for me


Hi I am little confused when it comes to matching a AMP with my speakers. 2 be honest I want the best amp possible for the speakers I have.

my Speakers are

Canton CD300F
Engineering Principle - 2½-way closed system
Nom. /Music power handling - 110 / 170 watts
SPL (1 watt/1m) - 87.5 db (1 W, 1 m)
Frequency response - 33...30.000 Hz
Crossover frequency - 400 / 3.300 Hz

Canton CD 200
Type - Floorstanding speaker
Engineering Principle - 2½-way Bass reflex system
Nom. /Music power handling - 90 / 150 watts
SPL (1 watt/1m) - 87.5 db (1 W, 1 m)
Frequency response - 40...30.000 Hz
Crossover frequency - 400 / 3.300 Hz

from looking at my speaker specs is the Pioneer VSX-AX4asi-s which outputs at 180 wats per channel to powerful for my setup ??

I am just a little worried as my canton CD 200`s only have a max output of 150 watts, and the Pioneer AMp is 180 watts and that they might blow !!

can you see any problems ??

thanks for any help !

No problem. You're better off running an Amp that has more power than your speakers can handle rather than round the other way. Most speakers are knackered by Amps that are driven into clipping because they can't produce enough power output.
