Home Speaker Asylum

General speaker questions for audio and home theater.

RE: As JA himself has pointed out in speaker reviews...

Actually listening at an average level of 85 dB is very loud and even inefficient speakers only need a watt or 2 to do this. Power is needed in these speakers for peaks that in classical music can be 30 Db or so for very short periods. that's the need there for high power, clean peaks to maintain fidelity for very short periods. Efficiency is good but the problem as you pose it is exaggerated.
