At 82 db sensitivity I think even Madisound says these aren't a rock out speaker per say, more of a high end almost full range book shelf speaker.
From the site of course...
"Don't overlook that there are output and power handling limitations inherent with any 5.5" 2-Way system. It will not fill a concert hall or bring the walls of your house down. This is a true high-fidelity system that will provide adequate and enjoyable output in a typical home listening environment."
Maybe if you crossed them over at say 80hz with a sub their output might increase without as much distortion, but I could only guess by how much.
If you do end up building 7 of them, you'll have some spare parts in case you blow something. ^_^
