Hey all, I am looking at a Klipsch KSW-10 Sub. It says the RMS is only 50 watts, but the dynamic is 225. Is dynamic just another word for peak, aka not really how much power it will put out?

I guess im just wondering how much power this thing will have?

KSW-10 Specifications:

* Frequency response: 29Hz-120Hz±3dB

* Power handling:

FTC Rated Power: 55 watts continuous, 22-125Hz @ = 1% THD

Dynamic Power*: 225 watts @ = 1% THD *Dynamic power indicates the actual power this amplifier will deliver to the woofer under normal operating conditions. While the FTC power rating indicates power available on a continuous, long-term basis, subwoofers do not rely on that type of power. Instead, the amplifier is called upon to deliver large, short-term peaks of power to be able to support the wide dynamics required by today's digital music and movie formats. In addition to the required FTC power rating, we've provided the dynamic power rating as a better indication of the product's true performance.

* Sensitivity: 110dB SPL 1/8 space, 1 meter

* Low pass crossover: Continuously variable from 40-120Hz, 24dB/octave slope above 120Hz

* Woofer: K-1070-K 10" (25.4cm) down-firing fiber-composite cone

* Amplifier: Class A/B discrete MOSFET outputs

* Phase: Switchable 0 or 180 degrees

* Enclosure material: MDF

* Enclosure type: Bass reflex via rear-mounted port

* Inputs: 2) Line level/LFE RCA phono jacks and 2) High level speaker terminals

* Auto power on: 2 Second ON delay, 15 minute OFF delay

* Dimensions: 15.5" (39.37cm) x 13.5" (34.3cm) x 13.5" (34.3cm)

* Weight: 29 lbs. (13.18kg)

* Finishes: Matte-finish Black vinyl

* Voltage: 110/120 VAC/60Hz

* Export voltage: 230 VAC 50/60Hz

* Built from 1998
