EA NL-210 enough for medium sized gig?

    For those who own or have owned a EA NL-210 is it enough for medium sized gig? Volume level would be average rock band level. Nothing drastic.

    Also what is the tonal difference between the NL210 and the Wizzy?

    thanks!

    I do not have a wizzy, so I can't compare the two for you.

    I routinely (at least once a week) use my nl-210 to handle not only stage volume, but also front of house. It keeps up with a fender blues deluxe (112), also a Fender de'ville (410), a sax, a keyboard through a powered mackie 115 monitor, and drums with only the kick mic'd. Of course, we aren't idiots trying to get into a volume war either. Won't give you that giant wall of sound that an 810 will, but it handles FOH duties and sounds wonderful doing so. I'm an quite frankly astonished at how much volume this thing puts out for a 210, as well as how good it sounds.

    Sounds balanced, with a slight thickening in the low mids. Thick compared to my studio monitors (alesis m1 mkII's)anyway. It still sounds more balanced than any other cab (barring my cxl-112) that I've used. The only time I need two cabs are when I am playing medium large venues with no FOH support for bass.

    Yeah, I was wondering about that "wall of sound" thing. At the rehearsal studio I go to I often use Ampeg 8x10s, 2x15s or 4x12s. But there is no way I want to haul those around. They are also way overkill for the amount of volume I need, but dang they sound nice!

    since these nl-210s dropped to 37LBS they are getting highly attractive to me as a single cab solution. One of my older wizzys weighs 33.

    37 lbs? Wow, that is getting down there. Mine weighs in the mid forties, and I find it to be pretty fly weight. I know my older, non-light cxl-112 weighs noticeably more than my nl-210. Eventually these cabs are going to get so light, that I'll need a heavier head on top of them to keep them from getting blown away by the breeze from the A/C.
