  1. I wouldn't say a 100 watt amp is over kill by any means, it's just not what people think it is. Most people think (and it's easy to understand why) that double the wattage double the volume and thats not how it works. You shouldn't have any volume problems with the new rig.
  2. A few things to chew on here It takes approximately 10x wattage to double the volume from a given driver. Currently your running 60w into a single 12 you would need to 600w to double your volume or 6w to half it. There are different classes of amps you will see class a, b, ab, d ect. This describes the basic circuitry in the amp and how it delivers power it's also why amps with the same wattage rating have different volume levels usually solid state amps arnt as loud as a tube amp. More speakers more volume. The easiest way to increase volume is add speakers. The average guitar speaker needs about 2 watts for it to start coloring the sound (usually a bad thing but for guitar speakers it's good). So 4x12 cab needs about 8 watts to start to sound good What I'm getting at is a 15 watt amp into your (I'm assuming) 4*12 should be plenty loud.
