hi wow i have no idea haha, i think they are 300 together (150 each) they are just budget ones from the warehouse (new zealand) very cheap brand new i took the subs out of the box to see if it was written on the back but nah, the guy i bought them off only said they were 300 watt didnt say whether each or not as for ohms ????? i think im in over my head actually may have to pay to have someone do it for me but $$$$ i dont have guess that would be kinda expensive eh?

it should be written on the subs or box. you can also check Ohms with a meter if you have one. if they are cheap, then 150 watts rms each is prob right.
