4x12 cab impedance/power - need help

So I'm going to be running my 100w Randall 2x12" combo into a 4x12" cab. I'm trying to decide what to get. The Randall's ext. speaker jacks run at either 8 or 4 ohms.

I know I'd get maximum output from an 8 or 4 ohm cab.
But how would a 120w 8ohm cab compare too a 200w or 300w 16ohm cab? (as in power/volume)

thanks

A speaker's wattage doesn't have anything to do with its loudness. Also don't mismatch impedance with tube amps, it's asking for trouble. If it's a SS amp, running a higher impedance is fine, but it will reduce output power.
