Got it. looks liek we were using different terminology. You are looking for max output (SPL) not the sensitivity. Most people when they refer to efficieny of a speaker, they mean sensitivity which is what I assumed. I am sure you are probably already doing this, but for anyone esle that might be reading this. When checking for max spl, you should check both the max spl and the max power graphs in winISD. That will tell you if you will have any mechanical limits that might limit your output. THe normal SPL graph won’t do that without telling it to.
