Speakers do not "have" watts. They are run by electrical signals that can be gauged in watts. Power specs on speakers have to do with how much electricity you can run through them before they fail, - as in start to sound awful, melt out or maybe catch fire, depending on how the manufacturer wants to market the thing. Most humans only run about ten watts of average signal through a speaker to fill a room with sound. Usually less, as in two or three watts, for program material. The rest is a matter of "headroom" Or the ability to momentarily triple or better.the signal to create transitory dynamic changes found in the source material, and feed enough reserve current to the speaker to adequately do that job, and keep the amp from "clipping" (which basically means running out of juice to send out to the speaker to recreate a momentary or unusually loud passage. - which can kill an amplifier,and rattle a speaker by the way, which is why more is better- well, safer.) But that is an amplifier specification, not a speaker specification. for speakers, its more of a safety,UL spec. It has nothing to do with how loud the thing plays either. That spec is given by the speakers SPL, and maximum Db level. Look this stuff up. No really. Its important. Wattage and speakers is kind of like saying "yeah, you can count on being able to electrocute a person by running 20,000 watts through 'em,at high enough amperage, but the average person runs on less juice than the average small lightbulb, so..." Another words a lot of nonsense.
