Congrats on the cab and nice paring. I have the same cab in a 4 ohm version. I bought it for something smaller and more easily carried than my larger Epifani cabs when I'm doing a small venue, esp. when I might have to walk a few blocks. I’m very happy with mine, I removed the logo only because I mainly use the cab vertically. Rear porting I find to be a non issue as long as I don’t back it up against a wall. I like it enough that I’m considering picking up the 102HF 8 ohm version with the horn to pair with my Epi 210. Finding a clean used Epi 210 thats a match for the one I have is a needle in the haystack affair.
