A Note on Power Handling
JBL Decade Series speakers are designed to produce reasonable volume levels with little amplifier power. However, the addition of a subwoofer and an amplifier will enhance the dynamic range of your system and help overcome the ambient noise in a moving vehicle. These speakers are designed to handle the power of a dedicated amplifier driven at or below its rated power. If an amplifier is driven far above its rated power, the output signal will âclip, and the additional power present â in a clipped signal can damage the speakers. Distorted or âfuzzyâ sound from your speakers is an indication that the amplifier has exceeded its rated power and you should reduce the volume level.
