Home High Efficiency Speaker Asylum

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

why so rare?

I'm struggling to find a small bookshelf with upwards of 90db sensitivity. I don't get it.
Seems to me that a horn or compression tweeter and efficient 6.5 incher. A Minimal xo and maybe a front port, should be possible. (Even a second woofer off the side to get both to add up for extra dB) Seems apart from klipsch (which I don't trust their specs) and HSU and Davis Acoustics Clint seems like a really rare bird. Even DIY, haven't seen too many projects... Most small bookshelf units go up to 89db.
Is it the reduced inner volume then that dictates things?

I just want something to hang up in the corners of walls/ceiling and feed with a 10w of class D. So can;t go too large. And no I don't want amplified speakers since the volume knob would be too high physically considering where I want to hang these.

oh and less than 400$/pair would be nice.
