Can 270 watt speakers damage a 125 watt amp?

Not unless the speakers are rated at a resistance (ohms) that is incompatible with the amp. Speakers don't generate power, the rating only tells you how much they can handle. So, speakers capable of up to 270 watts, can certainly handle 125 watts. However, if the amp is not 1-ohm stable and the speakers are 1-ohm, you could cause the amp to cut out and overheat depending on the protection mechanism of the amp. ...

Could a sub blow if they are wired wrong?

It is certainly important to wire a sub-bass unit correctly to ensure it receives the right signal from the right amplifier. However, swapping the wires to the speaker will not damage the speaker. It will adversely affect the system sound quality but a speaker wired back to front will not be damaged by the wiring. One of the prime reasons for any speaker to be damaged is receiving a distorted signal from an amplifier. An amplifier that is over-driven will produce a...
