I just bought a $99 Edifier "Bookshelf" speaker set on Amazon for my roommate's birthday. Those things are amazing! They are 45 watts RMS each, which basically means you'll see 180 Watts on the packaging (or you would with regular speakers). They sound great and have good bass even without a sub. I actually like the way they sound compared to more expensive 2.1 setups, but if you want louder volume as well I would spring for the 65 watt or higher model, starting at $150.
That said, THESE speakers are 12 watts RMS each, plus a 40 watt sub. That seems a little underpowered to me. Plus, the design, while unique, looks...kind of weird. I don't think I'd like them, I saw these on Best Buy a while ago and decided I'd rather go with the Harmon Kardon sound sticks 2.1 speakers if I wanted to go that route.
TL/DR: Edifier is a good brand, but this product you're basically paying for a Bluetooth adapter and a tiny sub with weak left and right speakers. Other users are saying these are total crap...I haven't heard them personally but from the specs you can do a lot better for similar $$$.
Felt the same.
20w minimum needed.
