    I have a reciever that has 550 watts total output power. I'm using either a 50 watt or 80 watt speaker package. ( I can't really tell). If I went up to a 100 watt speaker package (package being 4 sattelite speakers, center speaker and sub) will it be louder without using the volume? :b Just kidding. what would the difference be?

    What will determine the difference (in volume) has nothing to do with the power handling capabilities of the speakers, but the sensitivity of the speakers are.
