^^^Both posts above: You are preaching to the choir; though I appreciate that you took the time to type it out
Though, actually, 86db would be near (higher than actually) THX requirements for sustained sound.
Your words: sustained sound. If the sustained SPL is 86 dB, your speakers need to handle peaks as much as 20 dB greater than that.
My partiuclar 5" drivers are in a pair
Usng a pair is good for 3 dB more than a single speaker.
and coupled with a MWTL cabinet and will put out somewhere around 108db (@1m) at 38Hz before hitting xmax.
You've got me (and google) there. What is MWTL?
All I've said is that no speaker has a minimum frequency at which it can be moved. What it does have is a potentially severe SPL limitation. It's amazing how much my completely true statement generates disagreement.
I believe that the numbers I provided above are 100% substantiation for the idea that all speakers have inherent SPL versus frequency limits. If that is what you are saying then we agree.
I don't know about some of the rest of the chatter I see in the thread, though! ;-)
I would love to have bigger speakers or towers but my living room situation just doesn't accomodate them. Given that I can't turn up the bass about 75% of the time, given the thin floor boards and downstairs neighbors, I am thinking about sticking to the smaller speaker setup with a decent sub.
I've narrowed it down to the Energy Classic 5.1, Energy RC-Micro 5.1, Mirage Nano Sats and MLT2s.
They're all priced about the same on Cructhfield so would greatly appreciate your feedback on them!!
do you think that he really care about the science conversation?
