    Im looking to scale down my rig and was in GC the other day and played the pf500 thru the pf210 cab and loved the sound. Does anyone here gig with one. Im afraid it wont be loud enough for a stage situation. I wish the cab was 4ohm to get a little more wattage out of the head.

    wattage barely matters at all when you're talking 300 vs 500. what matters is speaker area and air movement. we don't know your stage situation, and there's as many whom a 210 works as doesn't work, but if you want to be sure about it, get a second pf210. then you get the serious volume boost, plus a little extra wattage as a bonus.

    I tried one out at GC, and with the 8 ohm cab it seemed that it was pretty comaprable to my B-100R which has a 4 ohm speaker as far as volume/output. It should do you quite nicely. If you ever get a chance to add a second cab that would be even better.
