Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: how many real world watts can a 20w ribbon tweeter take?

Remember that Watts are a measure of energy like 746 Watts equals a horsepower.
Loudspeaker watts are a term not directly tied to energy and a figure that is larger than the actual power in Watts, it is not Volt/Amps or Watts but a calculation based on a reference Voltage into a specific impedance.
Also music is a non-steady state signal where the peak levels can be 10, 100 or more times the average level one might measure with a Volt meter or sound level meter.
