Easier to damage a speaker from clipping due to pushing an amp to hard, than from overdriving the speaker with clean power.

I've been using a 150wpc ATI AT1505 with five little NHT satellites for almost seven years now, and they've survived countless blastings of the opening battle in Lost In Space, Spinosaurus versus T-Rex in Jurassic Park III, and that badass gun battle in downtown LA in Heat.
Good clean power is better than pushing an amp into clipping. Be safe though.
