    While searching through many Avatar threads I have noticed there are a lot of players using two Avatar cabs. My question is those of you that use a 212 as a standalone cabinet are you getting enough volume for a medium sized gig?

    I would be getting a 4ohm version and powering it with a 500w amp. Are these cabs efficient or do they really need to be paired with another cabinet? I will be playing mostly medium sized gigs with around 200 people.

    How are the mids on the B212? Do they really punch through the mix or is this cabinet voiced more for a heavy low end?

    Thanks in advance

    You should be fine with the one cab. I've used a single 212 with a 300 watt amp, 4 pc band + singer, PA for vocals only. I was as loud as I wanted to be.

    I use the 212 8ohm w/ my GK 700rbII which would be a max of 320 watts. I am playing w/ 3 guitar players all on tube amps, 2-212'2 and a 410) , and a drummer. I never have to turn my stage volume past 12:00. I do run a line out to the PA. There is no way I would ever in any situation have to play onstage louder than that. If I did, it would drown out the vocal stage monitors. If you need louder, let the mains do it. All this being said, I wish I would have bought the 4 ohm model like you are getting.

    I use the 8ohm B212 Delta (1,000 watt max rating). I power that cab with the QSC RMX 850 in 8ohm Bridge mono mode, So I am putting about 550 watts through it. Plenty loud for Medium Gigs
