Default Receiver Volume Questions


I have a few questions about receivers and volume levels with different speakers,
I have placed my 5.1 speakers in the correct positions and now have the job to wire and setup.

My L,C&R Speakers are all...
Klipsch G-16 (75W RMS / 300W Peak, 94 dB @ 2.83 V / 1 m)

My Surround Channels are both...
Klipsch RS-62 II (75W RMS / 300W Peak, 93dB @ 2.83V / 1m)

My Receiver is...
Denon AVR 1912 (90W to all channels at the speakers ohms)

I am also looking to add some...
Klipsch G-12 (50W RMS / 200W Peak, 91 dB @ 2.83 V / 1 m)
Which will be used for Front Height channels,

My Question is will i reach 50 RMS?
I often see people calculate the loudness using the information I have provided, i would like to know what kind of Db's are I looking at for an average person to listen to, If i go over 50RMS is there a way to limit the output of the extra channels? And if my Front heights have a lower power rating than my LCR channels will they not be useful?

I am probably wrong and may not come close to 50RMS, but what volume will an average person want? will all these speakers work together without a chance of damaging any of them?

As you probably know i have basic knowledge on this subject and may be getting confused with audio terminology, so i have have made a mistake with anything i have said please tell me,

Many Thanks
