I haven't gotten past 0 yet. It's not so much volume that I'm looking for. I want a little umfp in my chest.
I wonder why the mids don't need to be upgraded to a high power version? Will the mids or the tweeters be the weakest link now in terms of distortion at high volume?
The Umpf your looking for is going to be needing a ADA1250 and a couple EP500's
Like I said before I have a HK3490 and 165 w 2 ch , and two ESW 10 subs and at -5db I get air movement, but it is loud as H3LL.
as for the mids and tweets, why high power these don't need to be high power all the balls are in the bottom end. The woofers are what moves air and require the most power. a tweeter is so high frequency it takes nothing to produce.
I know this is not accurate and it all depends on music, movie what is being played and other things going on, but if your using 100w in an instant of whatever it is the woofers probably take 75w , mids 20w at the tweeters may use 5w.
