    I want to design a class b amplifier and test it with a 100 ohm speaker. I gonna use a vcc of 15V. I want to get a db of 40 but I don't know how I should choose/calculate the capacitors/resistors.

    Your amplifier is class-AB, not class-B. It is the output stage of an audio amplifier using emitter-followers that have no voltage gain, the gain is a little less than 1. You need a third and probably a fourth transistors to provide the voltage gain of a little more than 100 (40dB) that you want. Usually your two R2's are diodes for temperature control of the current. Nobody makes a 100 ohm speaker, they are usually 8 ohms.

    Here is an audio amplifier that has the diodes I mentioned and its Q1 provides its voltage gain:
