HTD.comAnd why "max"?The lowest HTD is 100(I think)...but it has this thing called a "gain knob".

Your thinking is backwards. Bass eats up headroom. It is safer to ask a 200 watt amp for 70 watts, than it is to ask a 70 watt amp to hit its limit.

your right the max watts arent my biggest concern its thd

the speaker needs 70 watts max, so the amp need to reach 70 watts without clipping, when i said

 

i need

70 watts max

 

i meant

 

up to 70 watts with less than .01 distortion
