They are 8 ohm speakers and really can't take gobs of power so I am not sure more power is the answer, especially at -10MV or less. Try another set of speakers and see if it sounds the same, it could be the recording maybe? I have played with two different sets of Paradigms and both could not play as loud as the specs say, they compressed about 10 dBs lower than max and trying to push them just raised the distortion. These speakers were powered with 400 watt amps and the dealer told him he needed more power and guess what, they had exactly what he needed!
Marantz 7702 Atmos
3 Inuke NU4-6000 amps for all speakers.
Speakers- 7 Behringer B215XL's, 4 212xl's for ceiling speakers.
Front subs 12 SI 18ht ported SLLT powered by Inuke 6000
Rear subs 2 XXX ported SLLT powered by IPR2-7500.
