I need some advice on a new receiver. I currently have an Onkyo 605 powering 2 RTi10's, a CSi3, and 2 FXiA4's. I'm fairly certain all of those are underpowered at the moment, and I had a couple questions.
1: If they are underpowered, does that mean that the receiver is constantly running at full load? If so, does that put extra wear and tear on the receiver?
2: I've always been confused by the disparity between manufacturers with how they rate their "wpc". Could someone help me out with what my speakers need to be at "full power", and what receivers to look at?
3: My son likes to climb on the back of my couch, stand up, and poke the "bubble" at the middle of the woofers in my FXiA4's. So far only the tweeters show any damage, but i'm wondering how the sound is affected by dimples and creases in that "bubble". And also, how to repair damage done to them (if possible).
Thanks for any help you can give!
