Re: How many watts needed.
I've got tube everything, but for gigs I use a 6sn7 preamp feeding a solid state Crown ce2000 and 3x 15's and a 18.  
The ce is two channels of 400w into 8 ohms, bulletproof, cheap and available for 650 or 700 US. Yes I can tell the difference between it and the pair of 6550's I use for practice, but I think you'd have to be a real pro to afford to use tubes on the road to generate 400 watts.  
IMO the surface area of the speaker is more imortant than the watts, by far.
