I'm looking at a 100 watt tube head.

A Crate 100h stealth to be exact.

What does the cab need to be rated at?

10 seconds of googling shows either 8 or 16 depending where you have the switch.

Google is your friend!

I meant wattage. I'm not sure when they rate the amp, either clean or broken up.

If it's 100 clean then I would surely need a cab with a higher rating.


I tried google but it didn't help on this front.

if you have a 2x12 the speakers should be 50 a piece unless you want it to break up earlier.

4x12, 25 a piece.

I think that's what you're talking about anyway. The ohms need to match, and then the speakers should match the wattage of the amp.

if your amp's 100 watts , then your speakers can operate from anywhere between 50 and 100 watts, as long as the Ohm is the same, usually 8 Ohms

if ur amp is 100W your parents are gonna be pissed :P
lol
i would say look lower wattage.. but dude nailed it ^ 4x12 = 25 a piece, can use 30s, wont make an incredible difference

I don't live with my parents and have other amps to practice with .


I'm only asking because a few marshall cabs I have seen are rated at 300w.


Why?

Why?

More clean headroom. Amps can pump out well over what they're rated for when cranked, speakers are rated at high wattage like that so when you crank them, you don't get any speaker breakup, which depending on your tastes, is desired or not.

If you're playing metal I'd go for higher wattage and a closed back, better bass response and less speaker distortion. It'll keep your sound from getting mushy at higher volumes.

For sure, forgot to mention that as well, though I do love the sound of the Greenbacks in my Framus cab
