Re: 1000 Watt????

@WaltR, you'll find that the F1 Loudspeaker is considerably louder than the L1 except perhaps at distance as @ST mentioned due to the line source array configuration of the L1 family of products. The power ratings are irrelevant in light of the performance specifications. With powered speakers, power levels are really just to help you ensure that you have enough AC power to run the speakers at full-volume. "Peak" Power and "Peak" SPL specifications for amplifiers are generally used to help marketers put larger numbers on sell sheets and offer no practical value since the amplifiers and speakers will never reach those output levels during routine service.

Re: 1000 Watt????

The f1 sub is 200watts +or- 20%

class d amps didn’t magically become 300% efficient 

 

the packlite is 1.8amps at 125volts = 225watts

thus, the b2 and f1 are nearly identical in power.  

the 121db rating for the L1m2 is without a b2, so add 6db.  127db for the m2.
