    If my Amplifier is more powerful than the speakers recommendation, am I likely to have problems. Example:-

    Amp 100w Speaker recommends 15-80 w

    Thanks

    Never.
    First, you should know if both are measured under the same standard. You may be talking about "rms" for amp and "din" for speakers, or viceversa.
    Anyway, if the amp is more powered than the speakers, you won't have any problem. If you hear distortion, lower the volume. It is more likely that you damage the speakers if the amp is not enough powered, because of clipping. Do a little search, it was already explained here (to me, actually).
