I know the M80s are rated at 400 watts RMS. Is there a possibility of damaging the speakers if I use an 1100 watt per channel amplifier with them? I don't intend to listen to the speakers at maximum volume as that would blow out all the windows of my home! :-)

If my memory is not failing, reports from Axiom of testing to 1,000 watts, so you should be safe.

The amp I am looking at is the QSC SRA 3622 that pumps out 1100 watts at 4ohms per channel!

I can almost hear the crackle in the speaker wire. Kind of like being near overhead transmission lines.

I have run myfive 80s on the Halos (400 watts @ 4ohms) at over 100 db levels, and the 80s have no problem and seem to like the power.
