There have been a log of posts recently regarding ohms, watts, power requirements, speaker sensitivity etc. Does anyone know of a spreadsheet where I can plug in things speaker ohms and sensitivity, required listening levels, room size and it would calculate how many watts are required. I probably missed a few variables but I hope you get the idea. I wouldn't expect it to be perfect but go beyond the very subject messages I'm seeing now. I also recognize the problems with vendor claims regarding watts. Perhaps I'm dreaming and there is more black magic then science here.

I don't know, but I'd be interested in hearing about it. The thing that would be hard to account for is one receivers wattage versus another.

" http://www.myhometheater.homestead....calculator.html

Please take a look at this really helpful calculator."


Thanks, I eventually found that one. It's very nice and kinda/sorta what I was looking for. Since my receiver only reported 8 ohm numbers I was hoping to find something that would also "convert" between 4 & 8 ohms. Sorry that might not make sense, but it's moot because I've finally heard back from Kenwood and they are telling me "do not connect 4 ohm speakers to the receiver".
