Apologies if this is in the wrong forum: mods, by all means shift to the speakers forum if you think it more suitable there... After many, many years I'm soon to replace my trusty Mission speakers with a new set of XTZ 99.25s. I realise these are in a different class to my existing amplification (Onkyo 605) but I have ordered them with view to surviving an upgrade or two in the future. Anyhow, I wanted to try and get the definitive handle on what is the maximum (safe) volume level to prevent damaging speakers (and I suppose amps). I've heard it said that mid-way is this level, except that "50" on my Onkyo really isn't very loud at all. When watching films, I currently tend to listen at somewhere between 55-60 (depending on the film in question): and that is a good level but not really LOUD (the gf won't tolerate that!) as such. Given that from what I've read the XTZs are not the most sensitive beasts in the world - nor is the Onk 605 the most powerful AV amp - do I run the risk of damaging the new speakers before they are even given the chance to shine with better kit?!
