So the recommended wattage for a pair of them would be 200W-300W depending on which one it is? If they're single, I'd be overloading them, but if they are dual, I'd probably be undercutting them. Is there a way to tell? .The previous owner had them hooked up to a 400W amp, but I don't know how much they knew about them.

Sorry, I'm just trying to understand it.
No problem. Your Tubes are single voice coil with a maximum recommended wattage of 100 watts per Tube. Any amplifier rated 200 watts mono (at a 2 ohm load) or 50 to 100 watts stereo (2 channel amplifier at a 4 ohm stereo load) will be a perfect match for these Tubes. You really do not want to power these with anything less then 50 watts or more then 100 watts.
