It does not matter how many watts the amp is putting out if it's distorted. Distorted/dirty output (regardless how many watts) will cause audible distortion in the speakers and may damage them. Even if you had a 20W amp and cranked it to max you would be hearing distortion because you're asking this amp to deliver more than it is capable of.
Your Jamo speakers are capable of accepting up to 130 W of power, but the assumption is that it is CLEAN. What you're feeding it at the MAX is not clean. That's why it sounds like crap.
Now about keeping the Max Volume, the AMP is giving out only 75 W. but the speakers are capable of 130 W. it has to take the 75 W input right..
I don't know how else to explain what I already did previously. Your amp may be outputting 75W cleanly, but it is not at Max Volume. It is somewhere below Max Volume. If you push it past that point, it will actually try to deliver more than 75W, but it will all be distorted, and that's what you're hearing.
I also have a SONY Home Theater, the Bluray model.
Now, when i am keeping sound in JAMO till where its clear, then the comparision between SONY sound and Jamo sound is same..
Are you using the same Denon receiver to power the Sony speakers?
Why do i have to pay 4 times higher price then sony to listen the same SONY Volume level in JAMO..
Why did you assume that Jamo speakers will sound louder? That is not why someone buys more expensive speakers. More expensive speakers give you more clarity/sound stage. If you just wanted it to be louder, you should have bought a more powerful amp.
and please let me know this.
AMP out put is 75 W
Speaker output is 130 W
Speakers don't output any watts. Speakers handle the watts that the amp is outputting and convert them to sound waves. But if the signal is distorted/clipped, all bets are off.
Now when amp is giving the 75 W output and the speakers are unable to take it.. its still Speaker problem ?
For the millionth time, it is not a speaker problem. It is your amp. You need a more powerful amp/receiver if you want it to sound loud AND clean.
