General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: Zu Soul Supreme sensitivity

You seem to think that consumers would use sensitivity measurements to see how a speaker would perform in their rooms. That might be interesting, but you can hardly expect a reviewer or manufacturer to do that for each customer's rooms. As a consumer, I want to know how different speakers compare in this respect, and so measuring sensitivity with one speaker is just as good as measuring two.

Since a number of manufacturers use some other system of measurement (and some probably just make it up), manufacturers specs are often not reliable for comparisons. Klipsch, for example, seems to use a reverberant field measurent for sensitivity, which explains why their specifications give higher figures than results of quasi-anechoic or anechoic measurements done by Stereophile or at the NRC by Soundstage. You cannot validly compare Klipsch sensitivity specifications with those for Paradigm or PSB speakers.
