I don't know if this is in the right form, but anyway,... I have a Crate XT120R combo, and I'm wanting to swap the speakers out for some different ones, but I need to know if they're 60 watt speakers that come in it. or do the watts even matter? I think they are, but I just want to be sure.

the speaker wattage has to be at least 1.5x the wattage of ur amp. if ur amp was 100watts, you should get an 150watt speaker, or two 75watt speakers. works like that. there's two ways to wire it, but i don't know how the wattage works for each wiring.

Nah, new speakers aren't worth it IMO.

Good for you. Have a cookie.


But really... there's no cookie. And if there was, you wouldn't get one.

People run 100w amps through 100w cabs all the time..

Amplifiers are generally designed to operate clean, and most manufacturers specify the output power as clean power. When you run the amp full blast, the output devices actually become more efficient because distortion is not considered. Under those conditions, the amp may be capable of putting out as much as 50% more power than its rated clean power. -Ted Weber

so you feel like blowing up ur voice coils on ur speakers, then blowing up ur amp now?


and which "people" do you refer to?
