Receiver auxiliary AC receptacle

I am getting the Energy 5.1 Take Classic speaker setup. The sub says it's 200 watts but I know how the numbers get fudged to try and impress buyers. My reciever has an auxiliary A/C plug in the back and is rated at 150 watts. Assuming that 200 watts max is actually true then it would only reach that level IF turned to maximum AND it would be in short bursts from effects. So my question is, would it be acceptable to plug the sub into the aux plug as long as the sub is never turned up to over 3/4 power?

I would not recommend plugging the sub into the receiver like that. Your sub could very well hit peaks that could overload that receptacle. Why risk it ?

If you're short on receptacles pick up a power strip.
