full range speaker for HT
Both my stereo system and my HT system share the same front left and right speaker .

Recently have a intension to get a full range speaker (FRS), as i know a FRS is high sensitive . What is the max watt it can handle .? My AV receiver is 65 w an i am worried it will kill the speaker driver .anyone have the same experience to share?

Or should i use the AVR pre out to connect to my sun audio SV2a3 to power the FRS.

What reciever do you have? Does it have pre-outs? Do you have any other amps besides the SV 2a3?

Just because the reciever says it will put out 65w does not mean that it actually can, nor does it supply a constant 65w, there is always the volume knob.

What full ranges do you have? What efficiency are they, I'm guessing mid 90s if your using the SV 2a3. What surrounds do you have? What is their efficency? You can hook up your full ranges to any amp, as long as you have a volume knob that can be turned down, you will not blow your speakers.

I use a variety of FR drivers in my HT system. My receiver is rated at 100watts per channel (NAD), and I drive FE127Es for center at very high levels without any problem. The bass management is set @ 80HZ and a sub covers from there on down, relieving the FR from long excursions. If you hear distortion turn the volume down. Your system will tell you when it`s had to much. I feel that a HT system needs a sub more than a 2 channel music only system does.

Dave, I`m an Amerycun and my English ain`t none so to good, could you explain what you mean by "sage advice".

Good/sound advice given by one with experience.

Thanks, that`s what I was hoping you meant. I`ve been into audio as a hobby since the early 70`s and never destroyed a driver by abuse. If your ears can`t tell you there is a problem, then your nose will when things heat up. Thanks for your clarification.

I've been contemplating FR drivers for a few years now. Probably get a complete set of fe167e's and build the recommended BR enclosure for the mains and the optional enclosure for the center and rear speakers. Will be using a Panasonic sa-xr50 to drive them.

I'm listening to a set of those (althou with the port lengthened to 3"). If you are going to use them set to small they should do well... the Brines box is better. We are also working on a Mama Fonken box for these.

The pair of 167s i have are awaiting me to go at them with the C37 & puzzlecoat (they already have phase plugs)
