you can't tell whether or not a sub is good from its wattage spec. In fact you should never choose a sub based on this fact alone..
its an efficient sub with a softer suspension. it can get just as loud off of 150w of power, as a 300w sub can get off of a 300w amp. Its a common misconception that higher power handling = better, louder. which is why you see ridiculous wattage ratings all over the audio industry.
its all about how the sub is build. and your box.
avery if you need a amp that would power that sub perfect. check out my mono kenwood I have for sale. don't worry about the rms wattage not matching, thats another misconception that amps put out their rated watts constantly. not true at all. you can set the gain for 150w and have 150 w of "headroom" to spare. it makes the sound of the sub much more dynamic..(amp has more control) which is good. you will also be much less likey to clip the signal, so less chance of destroying the sub/amp.
