7 Watts Rms?
The 7rms power handling versus 60 watts max seems like a huge difference. Is this correct?
Power handling can be measured with a wide variety of methods, producing very different results depending upon exactly how the measurement is taken. 7 watts RMS sounds very reasonable for this kind of driver, however, the maximum power handling should always be taken with a grain of salt. While the driver may be fully capable of handling 60 watts under a very specific set of circumstances, I would not incorporate this driver into a design with 60 watts as a goal for normal operation. To state this in very broad and general terms, the RMS wattage is typically a sensible rating for normal use and design, where peak wattage is not nearly as useful from a pragmatic design standpoint. Actual peak power handling should normally be around twice the RMS, so perhaps 15 watts would be a more realistic peak figure for this driver.
