I have a 1x12" cab, DIY, which has a speaker rated at 75W. If I buy an amp that is over 75W, will I blow my speaker to dust or can I use it? The speaker is Eminence The Governor 8ohm.

If you turn it up too high, yes.
as long as your amp puts out less power than the speaker's max you should be fine (ex: a 200W amp could run through a 50W speaker if the volume was less than 3ish.)

but usually its 2w at the speaker for every 1w at the amp (100w amp, 200w worth of speakers)
