Don't worry about it. The speaker rating is the max power they can take. They'll only require a few watts at reasonable volume.

You will need more power for the song ending power chord/drum slam.
and crescendos, guitar, drum solos.
Sure 100w will work, do you want realism, or to clip your amp during that part when you jack up the volume.?
15+ receivers, integrateds, stereo amps, monoblocks pair,
Ended up doing more damage to my older gear with under powering than having more juice to power them.
My speakers are only rated at 250 peak I think, I use my monoblocks amps at 650W rms into 8 Ohms, and have never had an issue, just watch, and,listen for tweeter distortion, and woofers bottoming out, etc.
haven’t had any issues in 25+ years, as compared to my younger days.
power is your friend. Don’t be scared or nervous, just listen as your volume goes up.
For gods sake don’t jam the volume when you’ve had several , your ears don’t work as well, and damage may occur. Personal experience!
