The result of applying electrical watts to a transducer (and its horn/cabinet and mounting/installation) is completely dependent on the transducer's ability to produce acoustic watts where you want it.

This explanation should help....   ;D

"Sound Power Density : is the Sound Energy Flux in a specified direction and sense through an area perpendicular to that direction, divided by the area."

http://www.acoustic-glossary.co.uk/sound-power.htm

It has been said that it is your job is to fill an area (which may be enclosed by a container) with sound.  The people are just there to listen (and maybe help dampen some reflections).

That would be the "peak" horse power.

They "can" do it, but not for long.

They cannot sustain that level.  The "average"  horse power is equal to 1 horse.

Here we go again----------------------

So a horse can go to 11 just like an amp therefore an amp that goes to 11 produces 11 horsepower
