2*15ohm, 25watt speakers in Parallel = ?????

I want to remove these speakers and just have a single 50 watt speaker.
But I don't know if I should buy a 8ohm or 16ohm speaker?

It's solidstate so it doesn't matter that much, but I want to sqeeze as much power out as possible.

Thanks!
I've tried to find out by myself but I really don't understand it.

May I ask what amp it is?

I would personally buy 16ohm. I find them more flexiable when switching them between cabs.

No. Well they're usually the same impedances as valve amps to be honest. That is to say 4 ohms minimum.
