There is no such thing as a watt amp.

To determine wire size you need to know the current. Watts = Current x Voltage, so if you know the applied voltage to the load that consumes 300 watts you can get the answer. If we assume 120 volts as standard home voltage then current is 25 amps. If you had 240 volts it would be 12.5 amps.

In general 14 AWG is 15 Amps

12 AWG is 20 Amps

10 AWG is 30 Amps

They can be as loud, as the amp is not delivering 600 watts. The 10" sub rated at 600 watts is able to withstand more power.

Can a twin 300 watt speaker destroy a 250 amp?

I am not a sound man but an electrician. But as I understand it, speakers only receive power. So if you connect 300 watt speakers to a 250 watt amp, you can only get 250 watts out of the speakers. If this understanding is correct, this could not blow your amp. I might say, however, that in most things electrical, they are not intended to be used at maximum output for very long. So if this understanding stays true with sound equipment, then running your 250 watt amp at maximum output in an attempt to get 300 watts out of it, this could shorten the life of your amp even though you never actually overload it.

Can you blow out your speakers if you use the wrong power amplifier?

Speakers can be blown if the wrong power amplifier is used and damage can be done by either overpowering or underpowering the amp. For example, if the power rating of the speaker is 300 watts capacity you will need a 300- to 600-watt amp.
