what exactly is sensitivity?
keep in mind that i'm a newbie to this type of thing. i've been in the market for a new speaker system for my car...what i want to know is what is the sensitivity mean....everything in my car is Alpine....i've been looking at the Alpine SPS-170A Coaxial Speaker which i can get for $55 a pair or the Alpine SPR-174A Coaxial Speaker which i can get for $99 a pair.....now i assume that the more expensive model would be the better one....but then i look at the sensitivity of the less expensive one and its higher.....the cheaper model has a sensitivity of 92db and the more expensive model has a sensitivity of 87db....a friend of mine told me it has to do with sound quality but i figured i'd ask you guys....WHAT DOES SENSITIVTY MEAN!?
