Perhaps mathematically, but in terms of human perception, there’s a lot more to it than that. I have a 30 watt Hi-Tone that volume-wise absolutely obliterates many 50 watt amps. Why? Because the simple mathematical relationship between wattage and dBLs doesn’t capture the true nature of what we really should be talking about, which is “audibility”, of which volume is a part, but isn’t the be-all-and-end-all. Extra wattage doesn’t help if a poor circuit design leads it to go to waste in useless low frequencies that muddy the sound.More watts = more volume every single time..other things equal.
