    I was wondering if anyone has had the chance to push one of these cabinets beyond the norm and if they cut through the mix for you or fried.

    I have two VL210's. I use a PLX1602 power amp. That's 1000 watts at 8 ohms and 1600 watts at 4 ohms and those VL210's just keep beggin for more. I actually think they could take more. I used to power them with an SWR SM400 and really had to crank it to get the volume I needed. That's why I went with the PLX. Now at the same volume level those cabs sound much fatter and punchier. I guess it's the headroom. Anyway to answer your question the more watts I put into them the better they sound and they didn't fry.

    I (used to) have (2) VL-210s driven by a PLX3002 bridged mono. That's 1500 watts per cabinet. I couldn't get the cabs to make farty noises even when the stage levels were high enough to make all the yellow lights blink on the amp. I was whackin them damn hard and they never complained.

    That said, this was clean power, remember. If the amp starts clipping at those levels, goodbye drivers.
