    Why the high watt spec in subwoofer amplifiers?

    Some subwoofer towers in four tower, "statement" speaker systems use high-watt class D amplifiers (e.g., Evolution Acoustics MM7, Genesis 1.2) and many standalone subwoofers use high-watt class D amplifiers as well (e.g., JL Audio, MartinLogan, Seaton, Velodyne). We know the obvious reasons...
