Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

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

RE: High powered amp + high Effeciency speakers =?

I have Avantgade Uno speakers with 102dB efficiency. For years I was using valve amps of between 5 and 28 watts, but have recently been using solid state amps. I've had in my system:

Red Wine Signature 30.2 - 30 watts - decidedly not happy with my speakers
Benchmark AHB-2 - 100 watts - If you want dead silence but deadly dull sound, this is great!
Accuphase A-36 - 30 watts Class A - Very good but bass not brilliant
GamuT D200 - 200 watts - the best I've heard my horns sounding, particularly the excellent well controlled bass.

Provided you don't push the full power from a big amp into your speakers, they will not suffer any damage. However if you can adjust the gain to improve accurate volume setting and to reduce the effective power from the amp, so much the better. Otherwise don't do what I did last week - place an object on the remote volume control and accidentally release its full output!
