I know it's stupid and I could end up blowing them up :scowl:, but using the headphone out of my multi-FX box, I was able to get a good tone and enough volume to keep up with some acoustic guitars, a ukulele, and some hand drums. I positioned the sub in the corner on the floor and the mid/highs together on an end table next to the sofa. The system is 40 watts altogether. That's about all the info I have besides they're Altec-Lansing's that I got at Wally-World 3 years ago for $30. Just thought I'd share!
