Do speakers draw watts from an amp or get fed watts ?

Eg. would a 60w speaker connected to a 100w amp draw 60w or get fed 100w ?

A bit oversimplified, but speakers get fed watts.

A 100watt amp could feed up to 100watts to an (8 ohm) speaker, even if that speaker was speced at 60watts.

That 60watt speaker is only built to handle being fed 60watts, so feeding it 100watts could blow it out.
If it's not simple, it's not sufficiently advanced.
