I think 5 watts amps are useless. Too loud at home & too quiet for gigs... 1 watts amps are even more useless (personal opinion - I know some of you are perfectly happy with their lunchboxes) Anyway, we keep hearing bedroom amp & late night playing, etc...etc... By all estimates; "conversation level" is something like 70 to 75dbs At 1 Watt, a low efficiency speaker like the greenback or some weber alnicos are in the 95dbs range (which is already entirely too loud for apartment/bedroom/late night use) To take this down to 70 or 75 dbs, while getting the nice tube compression by cranking the amp to its rev-zone (1/2 or 2/3 on the volume) - without resorting to artifacts like MV or attenuators - we are talking something like 0.01 watts (according to my calculations = 10X power = 10 dbs difference) Is that attainable? Is there an output tube/tranny combination that can attain micro powers like this? THanks!!
