While I'm reading this thread:
It is well and truly a 4 ohm speaker, mind you. Per watt, that would be closer to 84 dB, much like you would expect for the size. (Keep in mind that the woofer is a tad larger than your average 5.25", too.)Yes, but the measured sensitivity of 87 dB, although 5 dB lower than rated, is still 3 dB higher than many other speakers of similar size have (~84 dB).
