Dude, i cant answer all of your questions but here is what i know about speakers. Both speakers and amplifiers have power ratings - an RMS rating which is the minimum power constantly put out by the amp, and a peak rating which is the highest watts it could possibly put out. If you had a 100 watt rms amp and the speaker is rated 100 watts rms, they "should" work fine. Going with a higher watt speaker would reduce the risk of a blowout and may reduce distortion, but mostly the distortion comes from the amp. As for ohms, some amps have separate power ratings for 4 and 8 ohm speakers. For example, it may put out 150 watts into a 4 ohm, and only 100 into 8 ohm. Some amps only accept certain impediances also. It helps to have specifications for all you stuff. Well i hope that helped at least a little and please correct me if im wrong or you anything to add everyone.
