I'm very fortunate to be in a band where we have our own sound man and PA support at every gig; this has allowed me to scale back on weighty cabs (a welcome thing in my early 60s). I currently run a Hartke HL500 through an Avatar Neo 210 (44 lbs.), and I couldn't be happier with the tight, focused, and--yes--loud response. It is a little low to the ground, but when set back alongside the drummer, I have no problem hearing it even in an eight-piece band. Used to have a 212, but at 77 lbs., it didn't seem nearly as clear and punchy. Avatar seems to have a really great product and for not an arm and a leg!
