    Hi everyone,how are you?
    I'm planning to buy a pair of Monitor 11 for my fronts and they will be driven by my Sony STR DA4ES receiver.Considering the fact that this receiver is rated 110 watts per channel and the Monitor 11 are rated 15-250 watts.Do you think that thoes speakers will still give their full capacity?If not,then how much capacity and power will I be missing?

    Thanks a bunch in advance!
    Later.

    Can you try the speakers and return them if they do not produce enough spl for you? I have the 4ES and have played the radio down to the single digits and that was realllly loud. They'd have to be some really stuborn speakers for the 4ES not to drive them, imo. I rarely listen to music louder than -33 on the receiver and I spend more time in the -40 to -45 range.
