Possibly, but I don't think so. If the 212's really are 101 then every speaker I've compared to them is WAY below the rated sensitivity including Danley which would really surprise me.

I think I have it figured out now.

Here is what I mean. Before I tried an AVR with Audyssey in my room I had 4 different ways to try to figure out where reference is.

1. Receiver test tones...

No no, that's a HUGE difference! On that scene the inuke 6000 only made it to + 3.5 before clip lights started coming on with the mains ran as large and no subs.

6.5 db's louder = wow!

Of course it depends on the content that is playing, but I can't go +15 with any content without clipping the inuke 6000 so that is impressive - and also pretty cool because it means if I could get a...

That sounds perfect! I'm betting I wouldn't get any speaker hiss with those either. I can't hear the hiss with the 3000 in my LP, but I can hear it with the 6000.

Oh wait... I have no money......

^ I think the 212's can be pushed to insane levels, the 215's can be pushed to 11 db's less than insane levels :) which is still louder than I need.

My room is 3200 cu ft. If you have gone to...

Before testing I thought the difference would be less than 6 db's. I have read that the 3000 puts out around 700 -800 real world watts in 4 ohms per channel and the 6000 puts out 2200 watts in 4...
