Hi folks,
Here is a table (scroll down on that page a little) that tells you the power needed to get a certain output SPL for a speaker of a given sensitivity. Please take a look. Goes to show how important speaker sensitivity is, if you have limited power at your disposal. My preferred movie SPL levels in my dedicated room is about 84 - 85db. Amazing how little power i need if i have speakers of 90db sensitivity or higher
