How much amplifier power can our Skiff and Kayak speakers handle?

A customer recently asked this question and noted that we do not publish power handling statistics on our website. I am publishing my response since it is a question that comes up quite often. We do not publish this information because it is basically irrelevant and misleading and often interpreted to mean small speakers cannot be played with powerful amplifiers.

The Story of the High End by Paul Cervantes


The problem with the high end of today is that bullshit largely rules and there is ever more focus on what gear looks like, on how thick the faceplate is, and ever less on whether it makes music. It has become all too easy to make a piece of gear that looks and feels the part yet sounds abundantly mid fi. It is the perfect analog to the values of the bibliophile who judges a book only by its cover and never by its content.
