I have a line 6 spider 3 15w amp. on the back metal panel it says max power 75w, and the speaker says max rated power 15 watts. Does this mean that the amp can handle/power 75 watts but the speaker can only handle 15? if i replace the 15 watt SPEAKER with a 75 watt speaker will i have a 75 watt amp?

Wow, the manual for that thing is terible. No, it's just 15w

The power rating on the back is what it draws from the power line. Not what it puts out of the speaker.

A 100W stack is pretty useless unless you're playing BIG auditoriums. I'd rethink that.
