I have a Generation 1 Randall RH200.

I would like to run it through two 16 ohm Celestion G12t-75s wired in parallel.

The Randall's back panel says 200 watts peak power at 8 ohms and 220 watts peak at 4 ohms. I looked around online for a manual for the Generation 1 head, but the only one I could find was for the Generation 2. Here's the link: (http://www.randallamplifiers.com/images/stories/manuals/RG75G2,%20RG200G2,%20RH100G2,%20RH200G2%20Owner's%20Manual.pdf)

According to the above link, the RH200 is 200 watts RMS.

I would really like to run this head through the Celestions, but I also do not want to fry anything. I am playing at very low volumes, so I can't believe that the head is putting out anywhere near 200 watts. However, I am normally using the drive channel.

Does anyone have any further information about the output of the Generation 1 RH200, or advice about how to run it through these speakers? I would really like to avoid buying a 4x12 or something bulky.

i would think you would be fine, you won't wanna push the power section of the amp anyway cuz it's solid state. speakers are rated fairly conservatively so two G12T-75's wired for 8 ohms should handle your amp. you could wire two 8 ohm speakers in parallel for a 16 ohm load and this should drop the amp's output even more... but i think that is a bit unnecessary.

you could also consider a pair of G12K-100's, i actually prefer them to the T-75's for heavier genres. a pair of K-100's is rated for 200 watts so you'd be fine on power handling there.

I tried running the Randall through the G12t-75s and the speakers would distort every so often when I played the open low E. Is this anything to worry about? They don't distort when I run my valveking through them.
