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?

I've looked at this thread a few times, and watched it devolve. It's actually kind of amusing.

"i came here to ask what the ACTUAL power rating of the ribbon i wanted to use was"

Three things:

1. Get an understanding of power ratings: Peak, RMS, "music program", etc. You can get a good understanding from good sources by just Googling the topic.

2. Get an understanding of musical waveforms and frequency content. Again, Google is your friend.

3. Since you want to design/build your own speakers, get these two books:

"Loudspeaker Design Cookbook" by Vance Dickerson.
"Music, Physics and Engineering" by Harry Olson.

Continue from there.
