Will my speakers be damaged if I use

hello, Will my speakers be damaged if I use higher power than it can handle? My speaker can handle max 125W (manufacture recommend 25W-100W), but I want to buy used amp from a friend which is 200W. So, do you think my speaker will blow up if I use 200W. Thank you very much DT

No, they will not. Speakers get damaged by running low power amps too hard and clipping them, not by having too much power. You really can't have too much power, it only equals better control and higher threshold before clipping, which is what causes damage.
