    Ok so unfortunately I need more power then my 2x10 Mesa (which I love nevertheless) and im swapping my mesa setup for orange OBC1-500 head + new cab.

    So i'm looking something which is a little (like 20-30%) louder, and as portable as possible with the price point comparable to my powerhouse. Also I really don't care for the tweeter.

    My main contenders are:

    Orange 212 - I really, really love the portable design. I read numerous threads about it and the universal opinions are, the isobaric design is outdated but the cab itself sounds good. Will it be louder then my Mesa 2x10 ?

    TC electronic 2x12 (I don't know anything about it but it looks durable and is portable).

    My other safe bet is to get an Orange 410 but it's big and weight 40kg (would sound the best for sure, though).

    Any other suggestions ?

    I really wish the Orange 212 would not resulted a volume downgrade compared to Mesa - what do you think ?

    The Iso designs offer extended low frequency output, but it not be as loud as a 210. The overall output would be very close to a 112 cab.

    The TEC 212 seems to do well for many and should provide an overall loudness increase although the very low rumble frequencies will be less.
