    So while this amp is on the way to my house, I figured I should start thinking about what extension cab to pick up for summer outdoor shows. We generally play with FOH support but I'd like to make sure I have enough oomph for stage volume at some of the odder gigs out there that bands like mine end up playing. It's a 4 piece cover band, and I play an ESP 6.

    Any thoughts? I probably won't drop more than 7-800 on anything new or used, because this cab won't see that much action.

    The combo is loud!! Just get the matching 210 extension cab and you'll be fine. Better hurry though, Andrew's Music only has a couple left.

    I'm waiting on my 115 to get here. There were no more 115 ext cabs left- so I'm just gonna get a second combo. If there's any left in two weeks.......

    May be an option for you!

    The matching 210 ext cab is most logical, and the ONLY choice with a known response.

    Well.....actually.... a second 210 combo is the MOST logical as you're getting ANOTHER 500 watt genz Benz amp for 100 bucks more than the extension....... but yes, I agree with rickenboogie.

    Either the matching 210 or 115 will work well. The cabinets have similar phase response and were designed to work together from the beginning.

    You might check in the classified to see if a TB member might be flipping one.
