If I had, for example a driver rated at 100W RMS, and ran it with 1000W RMS, would the driver be damaged if not used at high levels?

Nothing would happen to it at all, You can not damage a driver with low clean power, you can with distorted low power,
That 1000 watts would push the 100 watt driver so hard and loud, you would not need the extra 900 watts, and besides that 900 watts only doubles the volume, its would heat the voice coil up so much and its a waste of energy.

If I were to make a system for my car (when I get one), I would probably buy the amplifiers first and use some low rated speakers until I could afford the proper ones. I just wondered if the amplifier would instantly fry a lower rated speaker.

I have never had the pleasure of listing to the Adires, i think there home audio drivers? Just like ATC are, i am not sure if there suited for in car audio, i just dont know.

i remember another forum talking about them, I cant comment on something i have tested,

I know the design i just dont know the sound.
Its kind of price for the engineering value dont you think?
