jp-  
I thought sensitivity expressed in db's was the measure of efficiency. Am I wrong? It makes sense that a "lighter weight" speaker would need less oomph to get it pumping, but in fact, a lot of high power speakers have higher sensitivity ratings, and I've used high wattage speakers to make my low powered Fenders (although not SE) louder as well as cleaner. Is my thinking here all off?
