Let's say I need a 600W PSU for my system. If I have a 700W PSU, my components draw 600W and I add a 500W speaker to my PC, I need a minimum of 1100 watts, right?

What speakers are you using? They should have their own built in power supply and plug directly into the wall, not your PSU. The only part that should be connecting to your PC is the audio cable(s).
