Power to the people

The Achilles hill to almost all speakers, large horns are among the exceptions, is the lack of adequate dynamic range to approach "realism" at loud levels. Likewise, it is widely known that a chief cause of driver failure, especially high frequency drivers, is too little power, not too much power, when playing the speaker near, at, or above its limits.

I have found that many SACD classical recordings actually have noticeably more quiet passages that in years past but also have louder loud passages----increased dynamic range and more need for greater amplifier power.
