Amp question for NS-10m

not trying to beat a dead horse on the ol "which amp to use for my NS-10s" question....but

i recently picked up a pair of NS 10m monitors. i been using a pair of fostex pm-1 monitors for a while and been thinking about making a swap to the ns-10s. im kinda doing this on a whim. now i have an older crown macro tech 1200 just sitting around. you guys think that amp is too much power for the ns10s? the amp is rated at 325 at 8 ohms per side, and the yammys are 120max at 8 ohms each. (studio model). i think they are 60 or 80 nominal. i dont want to blow up the suckers. i heard that if you under power them, it'll cook the speaker cause its under driven and will cause the magnet to over heat. (is this true?) Also, if not powering up the amp all the way, will that affect the sound from the speakers?

also, any opinions on the fostex pm series monitors?

any info from others would be appriciated
