Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

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

RE: 105db/meter NON horn loaded speakers

For a source with no directivity, the 106dB 1w 1m sensitivity would imply about a 25% efficiency which is quite high.
An array of sources where the radiators are all less than ΒΌ wavelength from each other does benefit from mutual coupling however the limit is somewhere around 25%.
I don't know of a way to do this with direct radiators above low frequencies, above that arrays of driver are individual sources and while one can form a beam, the energy time envelope also shows individual arrivals in time a "time distortion" of the input impulse.
Even with a horn this is not an easy task
