Looking for best 100watt speakers - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Do you already have the receiver?
RMS<-big myth. Speaker power ratings have nothing to do with how much power they will consume. A less efficient speaker will consume more power than a more efficient design to achieve similar sound levels. Impedance and sensitivity are the ones determining how power hungry a particular speaker will be.

The power game that many receiver manufacturers play can be most misleading.There are so many multi thousand dollar flagship receivers on the market these days that claim over 100 watts a channel times 5 or even 7 channels.

Lets take a example Denon AVR 5800 claims 170 watts/ch for all 7 channels.

(170*7) / 0.40 = 2795W

Umm lets see the common wall socket for our friends in the USA deliver what? 120v 15A? Is this correct? So
120V*15amps = 1800W
See how they can bull**** the consumer?

You can get 20A or 30A lines installed....and even if that receiver was capable of powering all channels like that, a situation would never come up where all channels required 170 watts.

Not denon or any other manufacturer's fault that the average consumer is lazy and stupid. Consumers need to do their own research.

The transformer on the Denon 5800 is only rated for 720 W under FTC guidelines (full 20-20KHz sweep) anyway. Denon has a habit of overstating power levels on their flagship products.
