Thats my worry, the max output power in stereo doesn't reach the 300w for that speakers, even bi-amping.
No, it is recomended that the amp you use falls between these two limits: 40 watts/ch and 300 watts/ch
I don't think you are understanding what the speaker maker is advising. They are saying, "Use these speakers comfortably with any amplifier you choose that has at least 40 watts per channel or greater, however, do not use one that is more than 300 watts per channel."OK and safe to use
for example, as long as you don't exceed its rated, clean, specified
power (the only figure they ever publish or advertise, and which may occur without putting the volume knob at the highest setting, by the way) would include:
a 40 watts per channel stereo amplifier,
a 100 watt/ch receiver,the Marantz SR7005
a 299 watt/ch power amp, or at the most,
a 300 watt/ch amp
Dangerous to use would be an amplifier with 301 watts or greater, so don't use one of those.
If you follow this (simplified) advice you will be following the manufacturers guidelines, however, as with any amplifier, if you hear the sound is distorting when played loudly, you should turn the volume down right away. This is true of all gear and has nothing specificlly to do with the gear in this discussion.
I also don't recommend buying receivers based on their power outputs. This spec isn't as important as people or manufacturers make it out to be. [It would be somewhat silmilar to buyinfg a car based only on its maximum speed. I have no idea , for example, what my car's maximum speed is , nor my toaster oven's maximum temperature, because in real world use it just doesn't matter.]
