XSim Power dissipation graph, risk of blowing speakers?
Hello, I’m a sophomore in college and am new to designing and building speakers. I am currently working on my first speaker building project ever!
I am making two two-way bookshelf speakers on a limited budget.
Woofer: Dayton Audio DC130B-8
Tweeter: Dayton Audio DC28F-8
I am currently using Xsim to design the crossover and I ran into a question removed link When I look at the power dissipation graph (amp is at 40watt) the curves for the tweeter and the woofer are both over their rated RMS. And when I set the amp to 100 Watt, both driver exceed their max Watt rating.
I was wondering if that was an issue and that I was running the risk of blowing out my speakers, or if I was missing something, or how I could fix this issue (without exploding my budget).
Any advice, comments or questions would be greatly appreciated as I am super excited to go on with this project but have been stuck because of this issue for a little over a month.
