Still mulling over speakers and Focal Polyglass 130V2 look the business with smashing build quality and excellent sound reproduction (if pricey at £185).
However, when looking about the web there seems to be a huge obsession that they MUST be amped for them to be any good. Question is, why?
After looking at the sensitivity for the speakers (91 db), I worked out that:
91db - 1w
94db - 2w
97db - 4w
100db - 8w
103db - 16w
106db - 32w
109db - 64w (beyond the RMS rating for the speaker and beyond the peak power of my headunit, so thats a no go)
So theyre going to be pretty much loud enough off the standard headunit (50W peak i believe?) without any additional amping involved.
So why the big insitance on another amp? Would love it if someone could explain it properly to me!
