    What does this mean? Because in the mordaunt short 20i specification list it says 75 watts short term and 150 watts long term, could someone please explain how it can have two different power handlings?

    Thanks, Jon

    Are you sure you don't have that turned around? Usually short term power means that a speaker can handle momentary high peaks of power, while long term usually means prolonged use or RMS (Root Mean Squared). If you typed it correctly, they may have published the spec. incorrectly. It just does not make sense.
