My yamaha puts out 80 watts per channel. As too the question if this was a unusually loud setting I have listened to it louder but with my monitor 8T's and 11T's hooked up. Unfortunately I use these in the living room. My bedroom HT uses the smaller 5B's. The thing that worries me is that un godly sound it made. I wonder if the voice coil either bottomed out or came out of the gap. I have pushed the 5B's hard on music and they have a slight poping sound on the passive radiator/or 6 half driver when they reach their limit. Never heard a sound like that before. I believe it must be the LFE on that Lift off scene, that does not occur on normal music material. I just hope their is no pemanant damage or degradation.
