Did he mention what would happen if you put 13 watts to that speaker? It's music power, a very short burst of audio, and a sinus wave tone would have to be at a much lower wattage without going into distorsion. The stamped wattage isn't that important, even if you have a 100 watt amplifier. Adjust the volume control so that you do not get distorted audio. That goes for any kind of speaker and audio amplifier and you are within the limits of what the audio system can produce without getting overloaded that potentially could harm it.Looking at them I saw they were 25 Watt, 4 Ohm speakers,
He said the speakers should be OK as long as I didn't exceed 12.5 Watts. None of my radios put out more than 6 watts, so its OK there.
That's exactly what I was looking for! Not too pricey either for two either. The only problem I no longer need one for the Kenwood TS-590SG, I returned it. I quickly found out that I would need a much later antenna than I can have under the HOA to be able to receive decent MW/SW.JBL Control 1 Pro speakers. Once you hear them, you'll never go back.
I first learned about these speakers when Bob Heil did an in depth review in one of his podcasts. Figured if Bob Heil made the choice, they must be pretty good, and of course he was right.
I've tried those too. In my experience they're hit or miss. Some sound okay other are "tinny" and buzz like crazy. Maybe I just got in the middle of a bad batch.
