    Would 50 watts be enough power to make the N26's loud? They will be going outside, and driven maybe by an Onkyo TX-8211 which only has 50 watts per ch. I need something cheap, and this is only $100. Would a $100+ Sony receiver with 100 watts per channel be better than the Onkyo? Thanks

    NORTHRIDGE™ SERIES – N26AWII
    Rating:
    Sensitivity (2.83V @ 1m): 88dB
    Maximum Recommended Amplifier Power: 125 Watts
    Using a simple watt vs. sensitivity** chart ...
    Watts_SPL(dB)
    1 ....... 88 (N26 Sensitivity Rating)
    2 ....... 91
    4 ....... 94
    8 ....... 97
    16 ..... 100
    32 ..... 103
    64 ..... 106
    128 .... 109
    **Increasing the SPL by 3 dB requires doubling the watts.
    Based on the above quick guide, you have enough power to disturb the neighbor's @ approxi. 103 dB using 32 honest watts (very loud)!

    Thanks Phil, I think I'm going to go with the Onkyo.
