"Clipped watts" won't blow a fuse. If you're comparing 125 clean W to 125 clipped W, its the same amount of power. What happens if you take an amp that does 125W clean, then clip the heck out of it, it'll do a LOT more power output (think of the area of a clean sine wave vs a square wave... square wave takes up more area, therefore more power).

I'm not sure when they were made, but speakers from long ago sometimes had inflated wattage handleing specs... and if he was clipping the amp, he could have blown the safety fuse and it did what it was suppose to.. if they did indeed handle 350, thats clean watts, 125 clipped would blow the fuse... IMO
