Hello, I just bought Sony SSF5000 (http://store.sony.co...tNumber=SSF5000) speakers. However, on the spec sheet it only says max 150W. I don't know whether it means each speaker takes 75W or each takes 150W. Can anyone tell me please? Thanks very much!

150W a speaker, however, if you turn it up on those speakers, they probably won't sound too good.

It doesn't mean a whole lot actually. It means they can handle a PEAK of 150w, but how much power you actually need depends on your room and how loud you intend to listen.
