A little or alot

Hello, ive got a question hopefully someone can answer. How are watts divided by speakers? Here the scenario...
2 channel amp provides 150 rms at 4 ohm. 300 at 2 ohm. Have a 150 rms 300 max woofer. A 50 watt rms 200 max tweeter. They are both 4 ohm. To my understanding the speakers will split the power 50 /50. So at 2 ohms they will both see 150 watts. Ok easy enough. Now you take another tweeter. Wire the two tweeters together in series. Making a 8 ohm impedance. Then you wire those together with the woofer parallel to create s 2.67 ohm configuration. Okay. Now the amp is sending less then 300 because its now closer to 3 ohms but still less then 4.... how is the power going to divide? Will the tweeters see 60 percent and the woofer see 40? Or something to that degree? Or the woofer being a 4 ohm see more like 60 and the tweeters see 40? Or will they all see the same power split in 3rds?
