Always read manufacturer specs carefully. The most fraudulent claims I'm seeing lately is peak output ratings calculated from a 2.83 volt sensitivity measurements and peak power handling. A 2 ohms speaker consumes 4 watts at 2.83 volts which 6 db over a 1 watt measurement which is fine because it is listed as a 2.83 volt measurement however the deception come from adding the gain from peak power handling to this number. If a 2 ohm speaker is 112db at 2.83 volts and is capable of consuming 8000 watts (39db of gain) then its peak output is 145db (NOT 151db).
