Anyway no they can go far louder but in all honesty I haven't ever pushed them to distortion. When I go back I'll make a five finger death punch video. I can run my 340s full range at -10 with absolutely no distortion or any sign of strain. There actually pretty impressive when pushed hard.

If u like tool these speakers reproduce the effects amazing IMO.
Honestly the only thing I don't like about Therese speakers is that there soooo accurate they make CDs sound amazing but they really shower the low quality of any lesser quality download. They don't add anything to the music. I would imagine the sierra just as accurate but more "pretty sounding" if that makes sense
If you like Tool...you should give a listen to APC( A Perfect Circle) "The Noose"...its an amazing track to crank up...I use it to demo my Sierra's around -8dbs which would put the listening levels at the LP ~105dbs....I sat back and smiled...
