That would mean that the Lore cannot take 2w RMS (101db@1m). Is that your claim?
2 watts is too much for the Lore to take continuously?
10w should be 108db (which would allow for a listening position between 6 and 12 feet at >100db). If the Lore cannot take 10w, it's a bad (or very badly mis-spec'd) speaker.
Can hit peaks of 100-105 but not steady. To me the issue wasn't the blown tweeter since we have no idea of all the circumstances. THe real problem was that it seemed like Eric didn't handle it well and didn't stand behind his product.
According to the spec sheet, it should (at absolute minimum) take peaks of 121db (200w). That's the speaker's rating.
Obviously Bill's knowledge is ten times that of most who post here (30 times mine) but one statement from him that the crossover is amateurish and a dozen people will be quoting him like its the bible. I think it would be more fair to say the crossover is not done the way he would recommend and may lead to other issues. Without testing it like Dennis talked about we don't know.
Bill knows a lot, and has a lot wrong as well. Unfortunately, he's not open to accepting his errors, which is likely why they still exist. You do illustrate a good example of that here. Testing (or at least modeling) would be required to do more than guess.
