The power handling will depend on what size inductors you choose, you can get some that will handle a ton of current but they'll be very large. Check for the individual components, their prices are very reasonable.

If you don't want to take up so much room you can just do a butterworth filter, it's second order but has some nice performance, and only takes one cap and inductor per filter.
