That is a more plausible claim as the power band is spread between three drivers. That is 160 watts to each driver in the power band. That is a big reduction as heat in the VC goes up by the square of the current. 350 watts to one small driver is totally implausible. It is NOT possible. In addition a metal coned speaker removes heat from the VC faster than other cone materials.\n\n\n\nPower spec aside they look like some very good speakers.\n\nRight now it's just speculation. I don't know myself, but everything else looks excellent. Anything positive to add?\n\nI've noticed this before and it always baffles me. Every time I bring up an Ascend Acoustics speaker you quote me and point out all of the potential problems and have never once acknowledged "this might be a good speaker". This case, it's the power specs. No comment whatsoever on anything else provided. Did Dave piss someone off over here or what?\n\nI can't seem to get a positive reply from hardly anyone over here when discussing their products, and YOU, in particular, really seem to have it in for Ascend Acoustics. Why?
