Tom said it was voltage clipping, according to the VU leds peaks were at 1/100th rated power.

There is a lot more involved than what you are speculating (although I don't know what every variable is myself).

A lot depends on the load the speaker presents. I have used 12 and 15 watt tube amps that drive my low impedance 89 dB 1w/1m speakers very well and I had a 50 watt p/p u/l tube amp with more micro-farads of capacitance than Decware's mono amps that was unable to drive the bass section properly. This same amp sounds phenomenal on 95% of the speakers out there (i.e. speakers that don't require a welder for current).

Danley's speakers are 100dB ~ 4 ohms, so one would think any amp rated/designed for 4 ohm loads regardless of the power will work fine and yet he uses an 800 watt amp. Shocked

It is all so mysterious. I wish I understood amp design.
