Its generally a good thing when speakers can deal with more then the AMP can put out, this will prevent you from blowing them. The rest is basicly just "matching". Its pointless to put really expensive speakers on a cheap amp and vice versa. To me this combination looks good, but i'm not an infallible expert.

I also read online that using an AV receiver that puts out too low watts can also damage speakers if the speaker recommends(or requires) a higher input power. How many watts can you go under for the amp before it falls out of the "safe zone"?

I'm curious as to who stated this and how this conclusion is drawn. A speaker to my knowledge can only break by overloading it or not work at all because its underpowered. Never have I heard of or seen a speaker break because its not fed enough input. I've had many different combinations including massive 500watt speakers to an AMP that struggles to put out 50 (i was also a kid... hehe) so i'm guessing there are more variables to this than just a wattage difference. Maybe this applies to specialized audio equipment.
