    If you're talking $500, why not the Tour 700 at $499? It's the same amp with more power. It can do 500W into 8 ohms as opposed to the 300W into 8 like the 450, which is pretty nice for the cabinets out there these days.

    Get an 8 ohm 4x10, whatever sounds good to you, but don't buy a crap cab. The spkrs ARE your sound. 8 ohms vs 4 ohms means you can add a 2nd cab later, if needed, and the volume difference between the 2 is minimal.

    I use Hartke cabs with mine. I have two cabs... a VX 410 and an XL 210. The 210 is great for small gigs. The 410 is for something bigger. I can throw them together get a nice sound for large rooms. I don't play HUGE gigs, but if I did I would just use a 410 as a monitor and go direct out of the amps DI to the FOH.

    I used to have a VX115, but I sold it. I never used it.

    If you can afford the extra cash for the tour 700, I'd say do it. The only difference between the two amps is power. I don't think I need the extra power of the 700, but, hell, having more power on tap is good thing.

    I also recommend the Peavey cabs. They are great cabs.
