if the tower speakers will take 90 watts RMS, How much RMS max can the amp push. Does it need to be 90 or less? What if the amp pushes 100-110 watts RMS. can it still be used

You've always got the Gain knob on the amp (or should have) that adjusts your output. If your speakers distort, back down the gain until the problem subsides.

Absolutely. rms is just a factory rateing, not reality. go as big as your wallet allows. just dont let it distourt, that cooks speakers

Too SMALL an amp will cook speakers faster. I would recommend getting an amp with about the same to +30% or so RMS wattage output into whatever speaker load you are running. 110 watts is about perfect for 90 watt speakers.
