A general yes or no based on your overall experiences and realizing of course, exceptions exist is fine or feel free to discuss in more detail/with specific models of gear. What % of speakers that you have owned would you say “(really)open up” as is so often stated with extra (more than speakers are rated to) power? How much “extra” power (Im thinking instantantaneous current/doubling down capability are most important here) are we talking about before this happens ? Does it sometimes take an amp with 50% or more rated max RMS power of a speaker’s max rated power before they “really start to open up?”. Im sure thoughts on this run the spectrum, given all the possibilities/options/preferred listening levels (probably should have put that first) in our hobby/amongst us. For those who answer yes, how much of an audible difference (if at all noticeable) do you think this “extra” power makes at lower volumes, like those most of us probably listen to the vast majority of the time. Once I read someone say they never use any amp less than twice the max rated power of a speaker. I find this a bit extreme unless one generally listens to music very, very loud, though it should lead to longer lasting amps. Thanks!
