I love to rock out to Tool as well so want to make sure the Sierra 1's will do justice when I feel like turning it up...a lot.
No I can go more. To be honest my 2 year old got ahold of my SPL meter the other day ( which is why its missing the foam piece) and I think something is wrong with it. I started at -15 and was averaging 88dbs when turned it up to -10 I was averaging 90... doesn't quite add up...
Anyway no they can go far louder but in all honesty I haven't ever pushed them to distortion. When I go back I'll make a five finger death punch video. I can run my 340s full range at -10 with absolutely no distortion or any sign of strain. There actually pretty impressive when pushed hard.
Room is 14x19 and semi open as u can see to the dining/kitchen
If u like tool these speakers reproduce the effects amazing IMO.
Honestly the only thing I don't like about Therese speakers is that there soooo accurate they make CDs sound amazing but they really shower the low quality of any lesser quality download. They don't add anything to the music. I would imagine the sierra just as accurate but more "pretty sounding" if that makes sense
