    would a 4x12 cab wired with (2) 50w and (2) 75w speakers handle? would it handle 200 watts?

    Yes. If all the speakers were rated at 75, then it would have been good for 300.

    You take the wattage of the lowest rated speaker and multiply it by the number of speakers.

    It depends how it's wired. Are they all the same impedance?
