    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.

    Curious, why not a matching TE cab?

    Mainly it was a price thing. Saved $300. Plus I was curious how the BC208 would sound VS the Elf

    How loud is the BC208 compare to the ELF 2x8 with the same amp setiings?

    They sound pretty comparable in my livingroom. I will have them stacked at the gig tonight. The BC208 is about and inch shorter back to front so not sure I'll be stacking it on the bottom.

    What's your 5-string in the gig photo? Looks like a Sadowsky.

    That’s awesome! What kind of music does your trio play, how’d it sound, get any audio clips, yada, yada, ...?

    That's an expensive experiment. Good luck.

    $199? Hardly breaks the bank.

    But expensive if the two cabs don't play well together.
     
  14. Looks good!
    Certainly nothing wrong with a nice round bottom. :D

    I got the Elf head and cab used for a great deal. I will keep the Elf pair either way....but they sound very good together. My usual rig is my MG800 with my Fearless F112. My band mates said they heard me a little better actually.

    I'd like to hear more about how the two cabs compare in terms of tone and power handling.

    The cabs together complimented quite well. The Elf cab has a little.bit more bottom end, whereas the TC has a more.mid punch.

    Sounds like a perfect match! Did it do the job? (This whole set up....nice small footprint!)

    It carried the room without FOH support. Approx 50' x 50'
