    RMS just another "spec", 100% box dependant. I could say my Type R is 750W RMS, becuase that is how much I am throwing at it everyday....

    not really.....

    1. I want efficiency
    2. I want a small box
    3. I want loads of power handling

    There can only be 2 of the 3 that can happen at a time, otherwise you are just making compromises. A small box will not be efficient, but it will allow for lots of power handling. A large box will have great efficiency, but not alot of power handling, etc etc etc.
