    Well, its basically just be sure but here we go...

    Will it be OK to connect 75w(max) speakers (8Ohm, 6.4OHm min) to an amp (6Ohm-16Ohm per channel) with an 80w output per speaker channel?

    My assumption is yes as I will never be hitting full volume or even anywhere near it. Can anyone confirm this?

    Thanks.

    Well, its the impedance for each speaker channel (it has that rating next to each spring clip) so I'm guessing its a case of anything between 6 and 16Ohms is acceptable per speaker. The amp itself has an advertised nominal impredance of 6Ohms.

    Its really the watt thing that the question is hanging over.

    It should be okay ... but it might help people if you said what the speakers and the amp are.

    Yes, I suppose that would help.

    The Receiver/Amp is the Panasonic SAHE75.
    The speakers I am looking to buy are the MISSION CINEMA M70 PACKAGE (includes sub).

    They should be fine ... the Missions are easy to drive speakers ... so long as you arn't expecting reference levels of movie sound.

    Should be fine as long as you stick to that.

    The most I've hit, and this wasn't a normal listening situation, just a test of volume, was something like -35db. It's a very small room so I'll always be hovering around -50db.
