On it's own the BC208 sounds great. Very articulate, with a nice round bottom. I think the TE 2X8 has a little more low end, but I will need more time to make that decision. Together? They sound awesome! I have a gig tonight, so I will bring this rig to play with my cover trio (Guitar, Bass & Drums) at a small/medium club without FOH support. I'll report back later.
