I am figuring that no one will ever need more than 2 watts sustained at 13-15 feet back with the 100 db sensitivity of these bad boys ... so how much headroom is required for dynamics and such?
I thought the 3000W amp that was recommended is a bit overkill, especially at $3850. Time is on my side so I can shop around for amps and the pre/pro.
