The wattage ratings on speakers are their handling wattage. They will only use what you give them. In other words, if you wire a 412 with a 100watt head, each speaker will only get 25 watts. You can mix them just fine. It's suggested to replace two at a time and put them in an "X" pattern if you're mixing speakers. Although you can try whatever you want.

No.

your statement is only true if the impedance of each speaker is the same.
your post is basically correct, but if the 4th (75 watt) speaker in his example had a different impedance than the others, that would make for an uneven power distribution.

Sorry OP, SYK is right. For some reason when i answer questions about speakers I either assume that they know what impedence is already or I completely forget about it.

Mixing and matching drivers can make for a magic accident, or it can sound horrible. Along with matching approximate power handling and impedance, you also may want to consider the efficiency of the drivers. If that is not matched relatively closely, the result may not sound good.

The efficiency is expressed in terms of sound pressure level at a particular distance achieved at a particular input power, usually dB at 1W and 1m.

the impedance was the only thing i was really sure about, actually haha

no problem
