I've been thinking today about the 212's, 228's etc. Pretty much no one will ever use all their capability. I wonder if theres a crossover tweak/driver change that can bring them into usable levels, where the drivers actually move in out HT's. I've had mine insanely loud and they pretty much did nothing, so we are leaving a ton on the table excursion wise. If most people are coasting along using 30% of the capability (if that) in 99% of applications, it would seem to me, if there was a version that you could have a bit lower sensitivity and actually use up some of the xmax on the woofers with an amp (which most seem to be doing anyways)
I know the 210's and 215's are some of the answer, although at a higher price. As awesome as it is having speakers that can go so insanely loud, not many ever uses them that way really. Even my 215;s without my house curve, you could not use up their capability in room, they go really loud lol
Thats just thinking out loud.
