Are you noticing any distortion coming from the speaker drivers?If not,I'm sure you are okay and good to go.

Your amp can clip without blowing a speaker. The recent Santana releases are known for being compressed so its not surprising you might misjudge the level. The FB1 is transmision line loaded, this should keep the woofer under control better than a regular ported speaker. Unless you hear something bad I wouldnt worry. If they still sound right relax, its ok....
Blkadr is correct.Soft clipping can happen if you are listening to music fairly loud and the source comes to a more dynamic passage, then quickly drops off.Hard clipping is when the amp continues clipping, high steady current is flowing, this can damage midrange drivers and tweeters.Good rule of thumb,keep that volume control below 12 o`clock.If the music becomes distorted turn it down. Pure clean power is not the problem, distortion is the speakers worst enemy.A lot smaller amp than yours in a hard clip will fry your midrange drivers.
