Need speakers that can rock with just one watt? You found da place.

RE: The energy content of music in the treble is usually pretty low

+1. There's more than one way to rate a tweeter. One is the actual power that it will take, the other is the system power that it will be used in. Power density drops by 3dB with each octave increase in crossover frequency, so a tweeter rated at 20w actual may also be rated for 200w system. The only way to know for sure how a specific tweeter rating was arrived at is to contact the manufacturer, but it's a pretty safe bet that a tweeter isn't rated for 20w system power.
