this might sound like a real noob question, does anyone have a link to a chart, or know the way to figure out how many volts=x amount of watts? bcae doesnt have such a chart that i could find.

It depends on the impedance.

Power (in Watts) = Voltage x Amperage
Amperage = Voltage/Impedance
Power = (Voltage²)/Impedance
Power x Impedance = Voltage²

To read sensitivity values in specsheets of drivers:
8 ohm driver: 2.83V = 1W
4 ohm driver: 2.83V = 2W

Do you like video games, and are you married?!:cool:

Seriously, though, she's spot on. If you need help with the math (hey, some people don't do algebra), just say so.

oh ****, i didnt realize there was a female answering, sryy bout that, just forget i tried to start somthn, i feel like an idiot
;)

Quite alright. We don't see many females in this "sport", and Candisa has the knowledge level of even the old men. My comment was a sly compliment to her. I hope I didn't offend in the process :confused:

Don't fear, I got the message :)

PS.: I'm not into video games and marriage is something I plan to do in a year or 5-10... with a women ;)
