I was just curious why with my old speakers, (Infinity) my listening level seemed to be -20 db to -30 db and with the axioms seems I;m now listening more in the -15 to 20 - db range
Doesn't matter, I was just curious about it

Thanks

Jeff

Some speakers are more sensitive than others. I'm guessing your Infinities were very sensitive.

It means that some speakers require more or less power than others to achieve the same output volume.

I was resisting writing that it means the speakers cry easily...particularly every 28 days.
