What is silly?
A powered subwoofer is comprised of a driver and an amplifier (and of course the box).
What if I were to pair a driver with an efficiency of 79db 1w/1m with a 10,000 watt amplifier? Well it's output might actually not be all that impressive.
Would I be able to claim "The world's most powerful subwoofer" ?
I actually agree with the_phew. It was probably just an over-zealous marketing department.
Actually,Glenn, I don't think ...that any who are posting on here are looking for an argument. Or, are they saying anything bad about this company's products.
But these are some pricey units and some pretty hefty claims about spl.
People are just trying to make sense of it all by asking for measurements that follow some guidelines that have been very standard.
Otherwise all the claims about enormous output are just words.
Regardless of huge amplifier ratings and 220v dedicated lines.
I know it doesn't sound like it, but I actually love Paradigm stuff.
Everything I've heard has been really stunning.
I'm just looking for some clarification. And how in-room measurements might translate to others that I have seen.
