I have one question I always wanted to ask: How loud could you possibly drive your speakers, withought having them to blow. What I'm currently using in my home theater is a HK 325 (5.1 setup) with rti70 polks, csi40 center, R50s for the back and velodyne cht-15 sub. Now, on my hk, I set all speakers to large and the volume per channel is set to 9 for the fronts and 8 for the back. My room size is from mid size to large. I watch Fast and the furious at around -32db and most loud movies like T2, saving private ryan and jurassic park at the same volume (sometimes -30db). Is this loud or could I drive my speakers and amp and not cause any damage.
