: Thanks BeatleFred for such prompt response!

That is probably because the Jensen 50Watt speakers are a much less wattage than the output that the reciever channel is putting out that the Jensen speakers is connected to, For Example: There are four channels, each channel is 200 WATTS totalling 800WATTS, then you may have an 50WATT speaker that which is,connected to one of the four 200WATT channels, then the speaker would recieve FAR TOO MUCH power causing it to struggle because the Jensen speaker is built to recieve only 50 WATTS of total power or preferably less which may enable it to sound better and less distorted, but it wouldn't sound distorted since the wattage matches or is less than the speaker's maximum, but Jensen speakers are good high quality speakers so there is nothing to worry about in terms of good sound.
So if you really want to use those speaakers so that they sound good then you can try a less powerful reciever and that should help.
Hope This Helps!:)

: So yes, I did hook it up to my 50W Jensen CJ-R speakers. And the sound is awesome. But there is a proble

: I just put the volume on 3 (range 1 - 10) and my speakers are not taking it very well. The sound quality is there as long as I don't crank up the volume.

: The speakers are new. IS it possible the 50W rating on the Jensen's is really 50 W peak to peak, i.e. 25 Watts? And then if I convert 15 RMS to "normal" wattage I might be exceeding what speaker can truly deliver?
