    I have never played the 210, only the 115 and 212.
    Is there a big volume difference between the two as a stand alone combo?

    I had the first generation MB210 combo, and it was loud. The 1st gen MB115 combo had the same amp IIRC, 350W output at 8 ohms with the same 15" 400W woofer as the NEO line, so by that time there was probably only little if any difference in percieved volume between those two. (However there was also a 200W version of the 1st gen MB115. Or was there?)

    While the current MB210-II (2nd gen) combo is still 350W, the MB115-II is rated only 200W (with a 4 ohm woofer) and therefore probably not so loud when pushed. For stand alone purposes, get the 210. :)

    And there's no conventional speaker out in MB115-II, so only (but not bad) option for matched cab extension is to buy the powered 115MBP.

    @shawshank72 , I gigged the MB210-II last weekend. Filled a medium sized bar pretty well. It was plugged into the board, too, but easily could have filled the room. It always makes me feel a deep rumbly in my tumbly.

    Nope. The four-band EQ gives you plenty of tonal options. It also has a horn that can be switched on and off.
