I have a Laney VC30 112 which is a 30 watt tube amp. I am thinking of replacing the celestion seventy 80 with a celstion G12H 30 watt speaker. People on the internet are saying that a speaker must have double the wattage than the amp itself. Is that true? Thanks.

You should be fine but I would not crank the amp by any means with that speaker.

I would use it with confidence but I don't play heavily saturated thrash metal with screaming feedback. So the real answer is: It depends on the player.
