Cello systems were sold as complete systems, and were VERY VERY expensive.
Your terminology is a bit strange; speakers don't "DRAW" 240 watts or 200 watts or whatever; the wattage rating is the maximum power they can handle without being damaged. The normal power applied to them will be much much lower.
Your statement "modern day 12" speakers take 400 watts" is gibberish; it makes no sense at all. It shows a total lack of knowledge and understanding of speakers.
A typical 12" speaker only requires a few watts of power for a normal listening level, but some are a bit more sensitive than others.
Your statement about "splitting power" also makes no sense.
Do you mean you are connecting all of the speakers to one amplifier? You don't want to do that; period.
You will be much more likely to get some useful information about Cello systems by going to the Stereophile Forums and posting in the Speakers forum.
