This is the Bloated'est I have found so far 350 Watts RMS 700 Peak PYLE Driver Tweeter.
I Burned it up with a Heathkit 60 watt Audio Amp. (Heathkit did not lie back then it puts out a bit more)
See attached picture. How can that tinny voice coil (end of pencil) dissipate 350 watts RMS.
I bought another one, took it apart tested the voice coil.
It started to overheat at 3 watts RMS 18,000 Khz.
I read about audio on several sites and most say the manufactures pick numbers just for sales.
others say they pick the watts on how much the speaker weighs, some just randomly.
This one weighs 3.5 lbs = 350 watt Lbs. or 100 Watts Per Pound or 700 Peak Watt Pounds (PWP).
Oh and in the Features on the side of the box they say it puts out 112 db.
Well guess what, it does put out 112 db and at 3 watts RMS guess they did not want to lie
about something a customer can test with a $60 meter in their pocket !
I wrote to them and they said something about the sun,
and I had done something wrong that's the correct wattage.
