You will be fine with a 60w speaker as long as you set your gain correctly with a dmm.
Yes 730n is a OE unit.
I was thinking about the connection from the Amp. The Amp should connect directly to the input on the box. It is a speaker wire terminal, and not a RCA connection. You are correct on that point.
But, you DO NOT want to use the Polk 60watt speakers combined with 100watt speakers on a 100watt amp. What's the point of having a powerful 100watt amp, if you can't use it because of inferior speakers.
Also, some people mix up gain and volume. Gain is not a volume control. You use the gain to setup the cleanest signal to your speakers, not to limit the volume to them.
If you did gain down the 60watt signal so much, as to not blow them, what would the sound stage sound like combined with 100watt speakers?
I think it would sound horrible. A completely unbalanced system. I had speakers properly gained that were incompatible with my amp. They blew out. Don't repeat my mistake.
They were properly gained based on the distortion, which the gain controls. Not the amps power(wattage/volume), which was too much for the speakers.
