Default Wattage Question

If i decided to go with these speakers
http://clubit.com/product_detail.cfm?itemno=CA5147063
would i need a larger power supply than the 520hx, i would probably only use high volume for music, and i won't be doing anything pro2c/video demanding while i'm listening to music
says it uses 560 watts max output and 280 continuous power, is there an adapter where i could recieve power from a wall outlet?
