CHALLENGE: Best speakers for playing 1812 Overture by Eric Kunzel with real CANON at 92+dB


The 1812 Tchaikovsky by Eric Kunzel album is a life like recording with HUGE dynamic.
Its dynamic s so HUGE that playing it in average consumer system sound will sound bad, because the soft sound can't be heard at low volume setting, so volume has to be turn up much higher than typically set of other recording, but then when the loud section comes, it will tax the system because it will draw power and make the speaker work hard :-)

I want to know what has play this songs at 92dBA before the real canon section.
Many audio shops are scare to play the track 1 loud because of the real canon peak sound.

Luckily, I found opportunity to repeat Track 1, last few minutes section (last 5 minutes of the 15 minutes song) on several audio stores (Revel Ultima, Wilson, Focal, Sonus Faber), so far I think B&W N801 holds the record for ability to play the loudest at 92dBA and can handle the Canon section with the most lifelike dynamic.


asin
Those accordion surrounds, never gave me thumping bass, always bottomed them out, and they gave me a flicking paper sound, went with the half roll surround, never looked back.

  Had the CV 380SE black felt on speaker face, sounded great, but every bass kick drum, it would give that crack pop sound.
wanted those speakers so bad,......
oh well
I have built many speakers, I have to say, a few could handle this, but without fail,  when I had decent to high sensitivity 15 inch,  these recordings sounded their best.  Also, there has been some talk above about drivers bottoming out on the canon shot.  You bet they will,  Look at the XMAX of a bass driver before playing a recording like this.  The high sensitivity works because you have a decent volume level without taxing your amplifier and with decent power, your amp can handle that canon without craping on itself.
