My PA has 2 channels (130 watts each). I see many speakers around with one number (ex., 70 watts) and then a RMS peak power (ex., 140 watts). Do I want to over-power the speakers like I would a car stereo, or have the speakers handle more than the actual PA? I'm not too saavy on these things. Also, do I want to look at the watt handling, or the RMS peak power when looking for a speaker matched to my PA?

Thanks in advance.

In car stereos, if you can't match the amp wattage to the speaker handling, you over-power (not too much, though) rather then underpower as over-powering will blow the speakers while under-powering will ruin the amp.

uh hu, didn't know that. but yeah with guitar/profesionaly adio equimpent you want the speakers to be able to handle more than the poweramp can dish out.
