    So what is the word on these guys?

    I play an Aguilar DB750 through an Ampeg 810E and love it.

    I would like something small for out of town shows or even really small venues. Plus at 8 ohms it should run really well with the DB750.

    Has anyone had any experiences with them?

    I haven't tried the PN-210hlf but if you are looking to keep the tone you get from your 810, I'd look more into the 210AV cab. It has a similar build (tweeterless and sealed) while the other is ported with a tweeter. If one isn't enough you could always grab another.

    I did look into that.

    But what excites me about the PN-210HLF is that it 8ohms and 550watts. I should be able to comfortably run my DB750 which would power 400watts @ 8oms to it.

    I think I would probably just kick it back as a stage monitor and just let the house work off my DI.

    I usually run my 810e and bring a RE20 and mic it up myself.

    I just want to know if anyone has had any experience with them, such as they are awesome, or they are utter crap... something along those lines.
  4. I like the Pro Neos. I tried the 210 and 410, and really like the build and tone. It tilts back and has really good volume for a 210...

    I have been really impressed with the Pro Neo cabs. The tone is more clear, but still fairly warm. Build quality is excellent.
  6. The only thing about the 210 I didn't like was the inputs being on the side instead of the back. I had visions of stacking two on their side, like how the Micro VR guys do with their 210s. But that's not an option....

    I assume they put it on the side because of the tilt back option.

    Thanks for the input.

    Well in case anyone was following this.

    I ended up getting the PN-210HLF.


    It is a little cutie and boy does it ever put out. The horn is pure evil and should get ripped out of there, but I can't wait to get this little bugger to practice and see what it can do.
  9. ^^^ Good idea on raising it up a bit. Congrats, I think you made a good choice...

    I played it at a gig two weeks ago and I was really impressed. Very good cab.

    Yeah, It sounds really good up there. But I wonder about the cab vibrating and possibly damaging the content of the rack. But I guess if it was a real problem then combo amps would not exist.

    I think I will either run it like that, or kicked up in front of the stage as a monitor.

    A question for you owners. Does it come with a cable to connect it to the amplifier? If yes, what type of connectors does it have?

    Thank you!!!
  13. How does it handle a 5 string?
