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

>i'm quite familiar with the 3dB rules as it relates to both watts and doubling drivers

I'm not so sure that you do with respect to power density, which drops by 3dB with each octave increase in frequency. Thus the power required at 1kHz is halved at 2kHz, halved again at 4kHz, and so forth. That's why some tweeter ratings are so low. In a typical 100w system a tweeter crossed at 5kHz might only see 5 watts. But since some manufacturers don't specify exactly how their power ratings are arrived at it can be confusing.
