    I would like to add my own opinion as I own the SR5250 set.

    You do not have to make the door 100% airtight to experience good sound and impact from the woofer. However, you won't get very good...

    A round speaker is more accurate compared to an oval, but the oval is typically louder as it has more cone area.

    If the 5 1/4" speakers will fit, DO IT. You have a lot of mid-bass and clarity to gain and nothing I can think of to lose. Make sure you seal up the door well and triple check that you seal the...

    To answer your original question, no it won't effect how much power your speakers receive.

    However, the advice given by DSkip is right on and would sound better than what you intend to do.

    "Dirty power" doesn't blow speakers. The cleanest signal still has some amount of noise, that's just how electricity is. Clipping, over-driving past the mechanical limit, and over-heating the voice...

    Most coaxial speakers can not compete with a component setup. Much better filter performance (crossover), better mid-bass, and usually a better tweeter. Components can typically handle more power. ...
