The SPL rating specifies how loud a speaker is at a distance of one meter when driven by one watt. I don’t know what speaker is in your amp, and even if I did, its specs might not be available.
That’s probably a moot point, though—experience tells me that most original speakers in amps of that age are substantially fatigued and generally sound very weak. It's a great-sounding speaker, but with a sensitivity rating of 100 d B, it’s relatively efficient and would probably be pretty loud in that amp.
The most dangerous voltages are stored in electrolytic capacitors, even after the amp has been unplugged from the wall.
Before you touch anything inside the amp chassis, it’s imperative that these capacitors are discharged.
