That's a great explanation, thanks.. but I've got to believe, based on
the actual volume of the Delorean cabin (very small), that after a
certain point (i.e. number of watts of output),  that it just doesn't
matter - the volume would be deafening before you actually "heard" a
difference with more watts.   (diminishing returns, if you will).  So,
for argument sake, suppose you have a great head unit that puts out 20
watts per channel.  Is a 70 watt stereo *inside a Delorean* really
going to sound better at the same tolerable volume?  From your
explanation, the wattage ratings (assuming similar component quality
and build) only matters at very high volume, which makes perfect
sense... but listening to 70 watts inside the car has got to be beyond
ear-damage level, no matter the type of music one is listening to.

If you're going for max watts and ear-drum busting and ground shaking
bass, sure, that argument makes sense - but what about normal,
everyday listening habits?
