    Budget? Wattage requirements? Do you want something that can tilt back to act like a monitor?

    but, at 20 watts with 1-8" + HF driver, it sounds like a practice amp.

    to keep up with a band, you'll need at least 100-150 watts and 1-15" or 2-10" speakers.

    My opinion.

    +1 even as a stage monitor, you need a couple hundred watts and at least a 15, 2 10's, etc. Anything less is a bedroom practice amp.

    +1, RickenBoogie is right on the money, too small doesn't work.
