I wonder why wattage matters when it comes to active speakers? The amp built-in is already matched to the drivers. More wattage does not translate to better sound. If your intention is to play loud then you may consider how big the room it is going to play in. For near field desktop, 10 watt speakers can be loud enough. Now if you want bass heavy speakers, get the one that has the biggest driver. You may also want to check 2.1 systems, it's surprising how good they sound given the price.
Yes, 1280bt is very sensitive to positioning, I have one, when placed close to the rear wall there was no bass at all it needs some space behind it. And I get even better bass when placed two feet above ear level, weird!!Hi there!
Initially you may be craving for bass. But the rest is matter in fact (at the entry level). 1280 bt are decent in the bass department if you place them properly. These small speakers shines with enough distance between them as well as from the side and rear walls. I made my friend to understand the importance of vocals, mids and highs. Now he is very much happier.
It is well known that m50s are good but bass overtakes rest.
Have patience. Do your research and slightly rise the budget. And you are good to go with any active speakers with subwoofer out.
