By definition a watt is a watt. Some say tube power is more but I think it is because a tube amp generally clips more gracefully giving the idea it has more power than it does. I would like to see a 20 watt tube amp stand up to a 200 watt solid state at 20hz. Volume wise, you know as for loudness, there's not much difference in 20 and 200 watts. Generally, at reasonably sane levels, you don't use but a few watts anyway.

Please explain

OK,call me dumb,stupid,I do not care but can some one tell me the difference in a watt of ss to a watt of tube power?

Obviously they can not be the same.A speaker that requires 200 watts of ss power but can be driven with 20 watts of tube power.Is there a formula to figure this out?Yeah,I know there"s tons of variables to this,but generally speaking,whats the diff.?Speaker type of coarse plays a big part,but just want to know watt to watt whats the diff. in ss power vers. tube power?Sonic quality aside,just electrically speaking.
