I think the Creative Inspire T3300 is my best bet (5.5w per speaker, 16w subwoofer).
Before I go and order, I thought it was best I checked here first :)

Logitech also make decent speakers, but I'd probs stick with the creatives.

Two yoghurt cans connected with a string of yarn and a plastic bowl you bop with your bare feet (doubles as a footrest in "off" mode) will handle it just as good as any Logitech these days. Just mind the date on the yoghurt, it's tricky stuff.

Try Microlab FC360 instead.

Judging speakers by wattage is like judging singers by loudness. There's somewhat of a correlation, and that's about it. Much more important is the shape of the frequency response (i.e. how flat is it?). If you can't find a review discussing that criteria, then that might mean that these speakers aren't even worth discussing from a sound quality perspective.


Just general advice, I haven't looked at either model.
