Currently look at two different amp heads
A micro terror (20w) paired with a 2x12 cab - https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B00DV9H47E/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1465609197&sr=8-1&pi=SY200_QL40&keywords=Micro+terror&dpPl=1&dpID=51G7xEQwoIL&ref=plSrch

And a subzero amp head(50w) paired with a 2x12 -

Micro terror is a hybrid amp so preamp has tubes and the
Subzero is all tubes so tone wise...???

My question is if the 50w will be too loud for home use. I want to use these mainly for home and wanting that growly rock tone like AC/DC. Thoughts on this?

50w is fine, just turn it down. A 2x12 will be 3db louder than a 1x12 and probably have more noticeable bass.

Not a fan of the Micro-terror. Weak sauce compared to a Tiny Terror IMO.

I had a 100w Marshall in my guitar room for a while and even on half power it was too loud.Could'nt get a decent sound out of it at low volume.That thing was made to be played loud.Infact even a Peavey Classic 30 combo i had was too loud for indoors.My Blues Jnr is too loud really but useable.You don't need much power at all for home use.

That's the case with a few Marshalls, I think, but it's the exception rather than the rule. Most master volume (or clean) tube amps will cope with low volume as well as any solid-state amp.
