    I'm really interested in the pf 500 head and 210 cab. Has anyone gigged in a medium size venue with one of these? My band plays classic rock and RHCP style music. The guitarist and drummer don't get too loud either.

    Look for an efficient 210 and you have a winning combination in my opinion. I have used a 210 without a tweeter and my PF500 for some lower volume gigs, and with a PA to back it up there isnt much need for more on mid-to-large size shows. Unless your playing stadiums then you might want something a little more efficient and larger.

    It would probably be fine for you. I gig in similar circumstances and use an even smaller rig sometimes and don't have a problem.
  5. Are you gigging with a PA?

    IME "medium" gigs require the biggest rigs as you will want to fill the low end for the house. For "big" gigs you are usually just providing your own stage monitor.
