Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

Distortion is a function of volume level

A typical two-way high end stand mounted speaker has low distortion in the bass at playback levels up to 85-90 dB average. If that's enough for your listening habits, no problem. You can add a sub or two if you want the bottom octave. But if you want to bang heads at 100 dB average, bigger speakers are the way to go.
