the distance between front M80s and my ears is about 7 ft;
and between the front M80s and the SPL meter is about 6 ft.
All measurements are +- 1 inch.

I'll let you calculate the conversions.

the second photo from the top of this page will give you
an idea of the distances:

or in the axiom gallery, "HT room".

when i took this photo, the camera lens was exactly at eye position.

Can you define your usual sitting distance?
The dB measures need to be quantified with that measure otherwise at 1m i would say ho hum but at 20m i would say, holy crap on a cracker.



chesseroo, what would you say now that i've given you the details you asked for?

I would say feasible.
My measures with the M60s were at 10 to 12 feet (don't exactly recall now) and i pushed them with an AVR at the time (now i can use a dedicated amp if i choose).
So, M80s, larger speaker, plus closer distance to measure by half, and discrete amp, i can see the possibility of those SPLs being attained.

i must say that those SPLs of mine have been taken while all speakers were active: 7.1 (minus a center front which i don't use).

also, the SPL meter used is a semi-pro model that is user calibrated.
the numbers i gave for wattage were much more approximations.
a good meter to measure that is costly, so it's not worth it for me to buy.

No go, Peter.

You didn't come off smelling like a Rose on that one.
