New rig arrived today! Mesa content

  1. Brand spanky new Mesa Subway D800 and 2 Powerhouse 2x10s. I have to tell you guys, this rig is Amazing! Everything I've read on here about the D800 all makes perfect sense now. It's an outstanding little head with a TON of clean girth and power. The Deep switch, input and voicing controls have ALOT of effect on the tone. I've only messed with it for a few hours, but I'm liking..Deep "On", Input and Voicing in the 1-2 o'clock range, everything else flat, Master at 9:00 (I have neighbors.. lol).

    I went from an M9 and Powerhouse 4x10 to this and it's quite a step UP. In all fairness, the 4x10 was an 8 ohm cab and these 2 PH210's represent a 4 ohm load to the D800. It sounds similar but not as bright, thicker (in a good way) with more much more "hit". Lighter too! I know the Subway 12s and 15s are allegedly great cabs and significantly lighter than the PH210s' but I've always been 10's guy. If Mesa made a Subway 2x10, I would have been all over a couple of them.

    Anyone who's considering this head, just pull the trigger! Peace

    I've been pining over this exact rig. Be sure and post how you continue to feel about it.

    Also I'd love to hear your thoughts on stacking it vertical vs horizontal, if you wouldn't mind obliging.
  5. I'll update after I put some miles on it. I built a pedestal, so I doubt I'll ever stack it Vertically. I'll add one thing, after schlepping that 4x10 (98lbs) I was a little concerned about these cabs being 68lbs. but they don't "feel" that heavy and are pretty easy to carry. That PH410 was a backbreaker..

    I did. Used to run 2 PH210s with a Prodigy, but got my D800 this past Tuesday and am loving it. Only difference is I run the cabinets vertically.
