How loud can I safely push my speakers?

Hi,

I've recently bought a pair of Wharfedale Diamond 10.1 speakers to go with my Marantz PM6003 amp. As of yet I have only been using them for more private listening to acoustic music and haven't pushed them particularly hard (the amp's volume control never exceeding around 1/3 of it's potential rotation), but with a Halloween house party and use in a larger room around the corner I was wondering how far I can push them without risking damage.

Thanks for the help!

So is fairly vigorous vibration of the woofer cone OK? Obviously it's hard/ impossible to provide an accurate cut-off point via text but broadly speaking should I follow the mantra that if it sounds fine (i.e. doesn't distort) it is fine?
