if you have a cab rated for 100 watts, but a 20 watt head, will it only go to 20 watts, or can hooking up louder speakers make more output?

A 20 watt head will produce 20 watts. Speaker wattage is just how much amp wattage they can stand up too.

Speaker efficiency can play a role in loudness but that is another lesson in itself..

Amps can produce more than the rated wattage if you crank them though.

Laney VC30-210

(agreed that when cranked, tube amps can put out more than their rated wattage, but that's not dependent on the speakers)

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.

Just use this analogy: if your girlfriend has a 34D bra on, it won't make her boobs bigger if she only has 34B, IOW the poweramp dictates the power
