    It seems that people are saying that you take a box with 2 150w speakers and you have a 300w cab. Is that correct? Not knowing any better if I wanted a 300w cab (in my little projects) I would use 2 300w speakers in it.

     
  2. 150W speaker + 150W speaker = 300W rated cabinet, if they are the same impedance. This is true whether they are hooked in series or parallel.

    That's it.
