It depends upon your choice of music. For a piece of loud music, 200 Watts of power will be enough. If you love light classical music, 50 Watts is sufficient.

depends on how loud you want it. Look for RMS rating, though

Match the speaker's rms watt rating to the rms watt rating of the device driving it. Also match the impedance of the speaker with the stability of the amp driving it. Pick a speaker that is able to operate over the frequency range of the device driving it.

Usually the more the better...The wattage rating for a speaker is used to match it to an amplifier...So if its rated for 20 watts to 100 watts then the minimum power recommended is 20 watts and the maximum is a 100 watt amplifier...If the speaker is powered then the rating is for the internal amplifier inside the speaker...The reason you want the most watts is because you can always turn the volume down but you can't always turn the volume up...

as many as the amp says , its a 40 watt system then a 40 watt speaker , its the power they push out determins the watts , 100 watts is an overkill .

Since you clearly have NO idea what stereo gear is like, don't buy anything.
