Of course, this is my subjective opinion, but I was very surprised to find that I think this is so. In terms of loudness, clarity, and tone, the Avatars are clearly better than the Ampegs when driven by my PF-500. btw, turning the tweeters on or off didn't affect my opinion. Would this be an expected result because of the Avatar 210? I don't know squat about how cabs are supposed to work with loudness and all. I can understand the 210 having a good effect on the tone and clarity, but the difference in loudness surprises me.
