Elaborate on what you consider better.

Smaller, so they will fit in more spaces, yes. Going lower into the midbass, no.

Neither one is particularly great. I'd typically go larger cabinet/woofer by default unless you wanted something smaller. To simply to put sound into a room, either will work better than things like soundbars, all-in-one speaker systems, etc. Both with a separate subwoofer will make most people happy.

I'd prefer whatever takes up less space. I have the Polk's on pickup so I haven't officially received them yet.

These Loft 30 speakers are really small. If size is a priority, these would be better.

4" woofered speakers can work pretty well - I've been using some Sony 4" speakers I picked up years ago in our empty family room for music while we renovate and update the area. Placed on the floor in the corner of the room (no furniture in there right now), there is some midbass, but nothing that a proper 10"+ subwoofer can provide. Plenty of volume with a small 4-Watt class-t amplifier.

You need an amplifier. If you have a reciever, it will have one in there.

100 watts through a single 4" cone? Unless the speaker's efficiency is completely awful no, not possible. Snap crackle and pop may be breakfast but it's certainly not music.

Amplifier isn't very expensive. You can go dirt cheap with the Lepai amp around $33 or you can get a more proper Class D amplifier for around $80: http://www.amazon.com/SMSL-SA-60-...+amplifier
It fits on the desktop, very small footprint. I'd rather have 60 watts per channel than those lil Class T amps. You're only paying a bit more. Or you can be like me and get a used solid state receiver: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Nakamichi...2a52ab566c

Agreed. Right now my desktop PC is amped with a HK 730 driving some nice 3-way bookshelves. I've also used the Lepai and it's simply unbeatable for the price. Whatever amp you choose it's going to be miles ahead of anything you buy in the "computer speakers" aisle.

Unless space is a huge premium I'd look at some bigger speakers. 4" may yield a great footprint but a 6" driver is going to give you more bottom end. You can offset that with a 2.1 setup but that also means giving up on using an older stereo receiver/amp to drive them.

The JBL Loft 30 bookshelf speakers are rated at 10-100 watts. The speaker has a crossed over 25 mm tweeter and 4" woofer. 100 watts is the maximum. At normal volumes the speaker will be using musch less than 100 watts. This speaker just like others in its price range will distort when pushed to loud 90+db volumes. But at average volumes should sound good. At this $35 per pair vs $130 per pair original price this is a excellent deal.
