What does it mean to say a speaker is power hungry?

Speakers - Blu-ray Forum - forum.blu-ray.com
I have a Sony STR-DH810. Polk CS 2 Series II Center and TSI300 fronts. Is there a point in the volume where speakers "come alive"? I have to turn my system up to 40 (which on this AVR seems a little high; I realize numbers are different on different AVRs). I have my center at +4.0. I just feel like the center isn't loud enough. My fronts are .0. The source is HD/Dolby Digital.

Should I have the CS10/20 since that goes with the TSI series?

Do I need something more powerful to power everything? Is this what is mean by "power hungry"? I don't want to blow up my speakers. Maybe I'm going deaf?
