Default Klipsch 6.5" Bookshelf Good for 1W SE?

Looking at bookshelf speakers...have to downgrade due to room...divorce.
I'm running a 1W SE integrated amp I home brewed.

Money supply is little but I have a Magnolia/ Best Buy account.

Any thoughts on Klipsch RB61?
47 hz-25 khz 95dB
I was looking at these due to Sensitivity.

I'm currently using my Boston A100's
38 hz- 20 khz 90dB

I took back Definitive Audio bookshelf speakers back earlier this year due to them lacking mids. Great Bass though.

Sorry about the divorce. That can't be fun.

Klipsch RB61s are as good as anything, especially with that sensitivity. I take it you're using a tube amp. I'd be happy with probably anything by Klipsch.

Hi, I use 92dB bookshelf speakers with a 1W spud amp and it sounds loud enough to bother the neighbours, but it does compress/clip on peaks with dynamic music...
