Even though Cranky would be better qualified to weigh in on this, I guess it depends on which amplifier you would be talking about.
I have listened to a cute little Musical Fidelity amplifier spewing out 50 watts. It was a little demon belying its wattage. So, it is not always about the watts. Given the Polk Lsi's better than average sensitivity, I would think that a high quality integrated amp giving out 60 watts should comfortably be able to drive them.
Which amplifier would you be talking about? I am curious..
I have a Bryston integrated B 60R
I asked this question after reading the review of these speakers which say they need more power...
SoundStage! Equipment Review - Polk Audio LSi9 Louspeakers (4/2002)
Has anyone had first hand experience listening to Polk Audio LSi9. Would appreciate if you can describe the sound signature.
Thanks in anticipation.
It has a very powerful sound, takes lot of power before they can distort. Can fill up a big room quite easily. The highs are super silky and the bass is too good for its size, smooth and controlled. Sometimes the bass may overpower the mids- if you can control by proper placements, they are manageable. The mids are natural sounding though mildly thin. Overall very musical speaker. Its off axis performance is not so good and the sweet spot is quite close to the speakers. I have played movies on them and the gun shots were plain awesome.
