I use the M6's in my system so I'm very familiar with them.

XTZ lists the Nominal Impedance as 4-8 ohms without saying what load is where in the range. For the sake of argument let's assume average is 6 ohms which is not a very heavy load. Sensitivity is 89dB, so combined with a 6 ohm impedance it shouldn't take much power to drive them. My AVR is 80 watts per channel (discrete) and it does a pretty good job, even when I push the volume.

"I expected the SPL coming out of the speaker to be higher" is subjective so it's difficult to make an assessment by that I'm afraid. How loud you listen, seating distance from the speakers, what type of room EQ has been applied and your personal preferences all come into play. What happens if the MV is -15 or -10, do the speakers get louder and sound OK still?
