These speakers are rated at 130 watts MAX. That's peak power folks. This measurement is strictly marketing numbers. To convert this inflated rating to a real useable rating, they probably will handle less than half that in RMS power. So they are probably capable of handling about 50 watts RMS. Worrying about an amplifier having to deliver no more power than the speaker rating is a great misunderstanding. Without getting overly technical, having an amplifier underpowered does cause serious damage to speakers, especially by blowing out tweeters when the amp is over driven. A 500 watt RMS amp "could" blow the woofers in this, but just don't crank the heck out of it.
