Presently, I have four outdoor speakers (MARINER 54 wired in parallel. Per the speaker specifications, they are rated at 60 watts maximum. Currently, I have a Sonos Connect:Amp hooked up to them; however, I was curious if I could go up to new AMP to push my volume or would that be blown speakers waiting to happen? From what I have read the parallel configuration might effectively push more wattage due to lowered impedance of speakers in parallel? Just looking for the right answer prior to pulling the trigger on the new Amp.

By wiring in Parallel each speaker is only getting half the wattage so your still below 60watrs to the speaker but much more wattage then with connect:amp. Your good.
