Hey, So I don't really know how to gauge speaker sensitivity. I've been reading up on it and I have a question. If I have speakers that are 90 watts RMS x 2 @ 2 ohms, and I get a 2 channel amp that is 100 watts RMS x 2 @ 2 ohms, but the speakers' sensitivity is 94 db, does that mean I can blow the speakers with the amp if I turn the volume up? I'm so confused. I know that having 90 db speakers as opposed to 80 db speakers means that I need less wattage on the 90 to get them to full capacity than I do on the 80, but like... I dont know. I guess im just wondering if I have a 94 db speaker system with a 100 watt amp CAN i blow the speakers? Forgive me if this is a dumb question.
