Absolutely you will damaged your subwoofer because your amplifier has the higher wattage than your speaker.The result is the amplifier will burn the coil of your sub.Now lets reverse the situation,if the subfoower has the higher wattage than the amplifier ,it has the right combination with regards to the ohms satability of the amplifier.
