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?

Hi Thump!

Check out Vapor Audio's Arcus speakers. They use the wonderful Beyma AMT drivers and they might just give you some ideas and/or answer some questions for your own speaker project. The Beyma TPL-150 AMT drivers I'm suggesting to you, are 102 dB sensitive and have quite a following! Here's some of their specs taken from Beyma's website.

Nominal impedance: 8 Ohm

Power capacity 80 W AES above 1 kHz

Program power 160 W above 1 kHz

Sensitivity 102 dB 1 W @ 1 m

Frequency range 700-23000 Hz

You can read more about them at the link below...


I hope this helps you with your speaker project in some small way.
