I am stoked to get home and hear it Got it in 8 ohms through RMC, as well as an MB500. I haven't been able to try out the newer 500's since they never have'em at the two GC's nearest to me. but liked the orig 500 when I tried it in store a few years ago. I also thought the MB212 sounded very big when I roadtested it last year for a few gigs, but I prefer the separates option and versatility. I've been a long time user of the ol 400RB and 410 B cabs (but 70 lbs a bit much), then recently a 700RB and NEO212I, i can't imagine ever needing to be louder than that rig, I actually think it "breathes" better at an outdoor gig, sounded almost too much for a medium/biggish room. So I can't wait to roadtest it at the next gig this weekend !
