I'm new to hone theater area and trying to get rid of my HTIB and start of with a 2.0 system. However, most of the units I look at say their 500-600 watts and my HTIB is 1000 watts and only cost $300.00 what gives?

for the same reason that cheap digital cameras can have huge megapixel counts but still take crappy photos.... it's a combination of (1) misleading marketing and (2) consumers able to be hoodwinked by such "spec sheet" ploys.

The power output rating of your HTIB was dreamed up by the marketing/advertising boys during their lunch break..

Take their number and multiply by 0.2 and you will arrive @ the real number..


Notice that they do not disclose THD, bandwidth, load impedance or # of channels driven..


Their published number is bogus and all BS...


Keep in mind..

This type of product is largely sold by Best Buy, Walmart, Sams, CostCo and internet sellers such as Amazon, they need a big number to sell their product..


Just my $0.02...
