If I had a 15 watt valve amp that could take an extension cab, If I match the right impedence, can I have say a 4x12 that will make the sound super loud?

Nope.

I mean you could attach the combo to the cab but the thing will not sound that much louder unless you also used speakers with a particularly higher sensitivity than the combo's.

Clue: amplifiers amplify so don't turn it on if you need quiet.

What's the point of an extention cab then? I mean most combos have the option...

Better sound dispersion, and/or personal preference. Also, mixing and matching speakers.

+1

it'll increase the volume (maybe more accurately the spread, as linkerman said) a little bit, but unless the speaker in the combo is really low efficiency and the cab's speakers are really high, it's not likely to be a massive difference.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

If the combo is a 1x12 and the speakers were the same type in the 4x12 you'd be looking at about a 6dB increase. ie. not a lot.
There are plenty of reasons for wanting more speakers but increased volume isn't really one of them.
