    I have a very low to the ground Avatar cabinet, weighs about 46 lbs., and I seat my PF500 atop it; with so many of our gigs being at extremely close quarters, I've discovered a need to elevate it in order to hear at lower volumes. I've seen a number of threads about the pros and cons of stands in general, but really am only concerned with portability and making sure my amp head doesn't slide off the cabinet. I am leaning toward the Quicklox below but does anyone have any suggestions as to how to place or secure the head to stay upon it? Or, can I make this stand relatively level but still elevated?

    If I were going the stand route, since the PF is made to screw into a base anyway, I would create some kind of "jig" that was basically a wood base with a lip that caught the front of the leaned-back cabinet.

    Or I would just set the cab up on something level, like the top to a guitar amp road case.

    Does your cab have a 4 or 8 Ohm impedance? If its 8, then the perfect, IMHO, stand for it is an identical 8 Ohm 210. Stack them vertical and call it good.

    the best "stand" for an avatar210 is another avatar210!

    Good ideas; however, since we always have good PA support and I am in my sixties, another cab isn't really an option. I did find that the rubber feet of the PF500 hook pretty firmly onto the front of the cab's lip and a couple of pieces of two-sides Velcro give a bit of security to the back end when the rear rubber feet are removed. I'm looking at the Quick-Lok stand. as I can use it for my GKMB115 as well.
