Oh sorry I was responding to the wrong thread. Salk wise I like the Song Surround IIs. I have a sub yes.

I don't know enough about speakers to really know. My gut reaction is wfficency would have less to do with low volume performance than other design aspects

There are many design trades that go into efficiency/sensitivity and Jim could discuss at length. As far as sound, the character or timbre should not change; higher sensitivity just means it takes less power to play louder. As long as distortion in the amp or speaker are not high enough to hear at your target volume then it does not matter. However, with higher-sensitivity speakers, you could purchase a lower-power AVR or amplifier and play at the same volume, or use the same amplifier and play louder (again as long as no limits are reached).

Ok thanks. I was just thinking this in my non engineering head.
