I have always been a "prove it" kind of guy when it comes to gear. As many of you know I have had health issues but a finally good. So I need to make life easier. The Xsonics 212CF seams to be just that. Easier and powerful and clean. At 42 pounds ,4ohms and 800 watts makes for a real serious piece of gear. Carried in in one hand , bass on back and Shuttle max 12.0 in other hand. Set pretty flat sounded great. Horizontal or vertical both sounded great. A totally different character but great. Low "B" string was tight and defined... So much so that I may have over used it. I say check them out . The cabinet is smaller than my 210 and has 12s in it.
