One thing to note, tbe XPA-5 can do 20x5 watts continuous power. Which means the output devices should be able to handle 200 watts continuous. If I read that post right, they can handle 300 watts continuous (multiple output devices spitting the load maybe.)
I think I understand what rep ( I think Lonnie is a rep?) is saying. But you have to deaf to sit in a room with more than 200 watts continuous being sent to your speakers.
If you have no concern for your hearing and have speakers that won't blow up under a continuous 200 watt load, with 90 dB of efficiency, if my numbers are right, the average SPL level would be over 110 dB (at one meter) with 200 watts. Peaks could be much higher.
So ok, while I think I understand what Lonnie is saying, I still think it's CYA and there is not much to be concerned about.
