Why are stereos measured in negative decibels?

Why is the volume of my stereo receiver measured in negative decibals? That is, 0 decibals is loudest (absolutely speaker-blowing deafening), -50 is a good loud setting, and -70 is good for quiet late-night music. My previous stereo was similar, as are most of the others I've seen in stores and friends' homes. WHY!?!?!

How best should I use these old Zenith Allegro speakers with a modern receiver?

I have an old Pair of Zenith Allegro speakers (50-watt, 8-ohm) with pre-attached cables and RCA-style plugs (male) for connecting to the stereo. I'd like to use them with a more modern receiver (50-watt max, 8-ohm) that accepts straight wire from the stereo; should I just lop off the ends and wire them in, or is there a better method? Also, can I use them with a >50-watt stereo if I keep the volume down, or is that just bad?
