For most of my gigs, a single VL108 or 208 and an AI Focus does fine, and is sometimes even overkill. However, there is a scene starting to develop in town of neighborhood bars hiring jazz groups (interestingly headed toward the "free" side of things) on weeknights and wanting them to sort of "cut loose" volumewise. I've played one of these before and did another last night, and in both cases, the Focus/208 thing was not quite cutting it. The musicians on these gigs are some of the best in the region, and the new scene is interesting and worth pursuing if not completely ideal. I used to play a gig like these a couple of years ago, but I was doubling then and took an iAmp800 and two 12" cabs. I could of course take two 208's to these gigs, and that would probably do the trick, only I'm not sure I want to schlep 100 lbs. of speakers to these little clubs to play late on a weeknight...I'll probably try this in the next few weeks, but it's not what I would choose. What I'm looking for is a single cab that can handle gigs like this by itself that won't be much bigger or heavier than the VL208. Right now, the NL210 looks good on paper: not too much bigger than the 208, and if I'm not mistaken, it may be even lighter. It's also more sensitive, and available in 8 or 4 ohm versions. The specs read: Size: 22.5"H x 17"W x 15"D Weight: 44 lbs (subject to change, should be lighter with the new vinyl covering) Response: 45Hz to 14KHz Impedance: 8 ohm Power Handling: 500 Watts Sensitivity: 100dB 1" @1m Sound Pressure Level: 127dB @ 1M Woofers: 2 10" Kevlar Neodymium Tweeter with level control: 1" high efficiency phenolic compression driver Crossover: damped 4th email@example.comKHz A couple of questions for those who might understand these things better than I do: How much louder would an 8 ohm version of one of these cabs be over the volume I get out of the 208? Would it be likely to handle anything that the Focus can give out (the Focus was cranked higher than I've ever had it last night, and I'd like to run it a little lower on the spectrum if possible)? Has anybody tried DB through one of these, and if so, how does it compare to other well-known speakers? Last, does the little light really go out when you close the refrigerator door? Other suggestions are also welcome.
