    I'm looking for something new for my apartment.
    I want a great half stack that sounds as good as it looks…
    I'd love to go tube if I can keep the weight down.

    Here are some ideas:

    Look into the new Mesa Prodigy or Mesa Strategy and one of their PH Series cabs. I'm really happy with my Prodigy so far.

    I went to the Mesa store and played them when they came out.
    I liked them, but wasn't over the top about it.

    *Thinks of an 810 or 215 as a halfstack*

    No no.

    I'm thinkng 1x15, 4x10 (or 8), maybe even a 2x10 would work.

    Go for 1x15, 2x12, 4x8.

    I think a single 2x10 runs out of excursion way too soon when playing with a drummer, but the exception would be if you went with a single 2x10 in the apartment at an impedance that would allow a second 2x10 at the jam space.

    what about a decent 212? Or even a decent pair of 112s.

    I practice with my SWR GoLight 210 and a TC RH250 head with my band. It is plenty loud, if it isn't you probably are practicing at deafening levels.
    Enjoy your hearing while it lasts.

    If you want a cool piece of furniture those Ark rigs are pretty hard to beat, but I'd just get a great sounding 112 cab for playing at home, and a second 112 so you can use both on gigs. I'd use the same 500 watt amp for both rigs.

    I've never really been sold on a 12 for bass. I've always been a 10 or 15 kind of guy.
    I'm re-decorating on Christmas...Jew life haha

    I could always keep this cab and get a head that works well with it.
    It has a 4ohm speaker in it.

    I Just got one of those carvin mb210e cabs. Its pretty sweet. Its sealed and its only 32 pounds. I want a second one to stack the 2. The only downside is the single input but still its great.
