    :lol:

    Computer speakers are even more imaginatively specified than car speakers :D

    As a rough 'rule of thumb', divide car speaker specs by at least 10, and computer speakers by nearer 100. You'll be far closer to their real specs then :lol:

    Hi Spuffock,
    There is nothing wrong with your meters. Just get stronger glasses so you can see the decimal point ahead of the 0.390W rating (very, very far into distortion) for your computer speakers. :lol:

    Hi Nigel,
    Here in my Canadian home, I can power a monster amp to break my own and my neighbours' windows. I would connect it to a stove, air-conditioner or electric clothes dryer receptacle. The amp would get 240VAC at 30A or 50A. If I connect the amp directly to my breaker box, I could provide it with 24KW and my electrical usage meter would spin so fast it might disintegrate along with the windows! :lol:
    In the USA it isn't as much because frequently their 120VAC sags to 110V. :(

    Hi Monkeytree,
    At a rock music (?) concert, they have a lot more than only two speakers, and a lot more than just one monster stereo amp. :mrgreen:

    Try plugging one directly into the mains - best with 240V mains though.

    But don't stand in front of it :!:

    Hi Monkeytree,
    When you can't hear the tweeters anymore, both them and your hearing are blown up.
