I hate the search engine on forums. They give you everything except what youre looking for. I hated to start a thread over a simple question, but I couldnt find jack on Google except ambiguous mumbo jumbo. I have a speaker that spec'd at 10 Watts RMS Nominal Power and 200 peak. Now, I know what peak is, I know what RMS is. But what does nominal mean? Secondly, isnt this kind of an odd combo of wattage handling for a speaker if nominal indeed means the same as RMS? A speaker that can handle 200 watts peak and only 10 watts RMS seems to be an unlikely pairing. These are the specs for my center channel that Im pushing with a 200 watt power amp. If it is in fact only 10 watts rms, then I would think that my 200 watt rms amp would be too much for this speaker. Am I missing something here??
