    You don't need other speakers. Those will work fine.
    The speakers you have are 25 watt speakers in a sealed cabinet. http://celestion.com/product/16/g12m_greenback/
    It's a 100 watt cab,NOT a 280 watt.
    It'll sound great and be VERY loud.
    Not a little club setup. Too loud.

    Then they are NOT Greenbacks.
    The cab is still fine to use. Power handling is not the issue,speaker efficiency is the issue.
    I'm sure it will be very loud and you are not likely to blow the speakers.
    MAX watts is VERY different than continuous watts,RMS.

    No................no...........................no !
    Efficiency has nothing to do with power handling ability.
    You have FOUR speakers. Four ****ty speakers would be loud.
    WHY does it have to be loud ? Playing huge clubs ?

    I'm probably 50 miles from you and should be able to hear that rig
    Make sure the impedance matches and maybe put some duct tape on your windows.

    Won't lower wattage speakers break up sooner?

    If you have a low watt speaker that's VERY efficient you might only need to have,say 20 watts to be loud.
    If you have a 200 watt speaker that's not efficient you may need 90 watts to be the same loudness.
    I have a speaker in my 12 watt Tweed Deluxe that is loud enough to hang with a loud drummer.
    It's a 15 watt speaker.
    A Weber 15 watt ceramic Celestion blue clone.

    OK...I've been wondering for a long time what it would be like hauling the old Super Reverb out to a bar gig in these times of lower volume.
    It was still pretty damned glorious.
    I've been using 1x12 and 1x15 combos that range from kind of beamy to phasers set to stun, and it was so cool how the 4x10 not only filled the room, but gave ME a chance to accurately hear and enjoy the sound even though I was just a few feet in front of it.
    No pedals...just a guitar and a great amp.
    And, in a 3-piece contex where i could hear every nuance.
    During a particular solo I was having so much fun playing on the amp's strengths, the harp player leaned over to me and said, "Super Reverb, baby!!"

    Yup,the bigger amps sound good @ lower volumes.
    Sounds like you had a ball and didn't hurt anyone whilst doing it.
    I get the beamy thing,1 x 12's are bad & 1 x 15's are worse.
    With my homemade head I can use 1 x 12,2 x 12,1 x 15,10/8,& 4 x 8 so far.
    I have lower efficiency speakers in my Low Power Tweed Twin so I can take it out more.
