I didn't end up keeping the PUB I had for a minute, but I remember liking the way it stand mounted, and the way stand mounting cleaned up the muddy bass frequencies that we all have to deal with in one way or another. I also liked the way the stand got the speaker up over the body of the bass and all but eliminated sympathetic vibrations from the amplified signal - this is especially useful when using a mic. Anyway, just last week, I had Gary Falk install stand mounting plates on two of my current speaker cabs - a VL108 and a VL208. I've played a couple of gigs with the 108 with the Focus on top, and the results were perfect: clear, open sound with no mud, and the added bonus of having an easliy positionable personal monitor. The stand is an aluminum PA stand that weighs 3 or 4 pounds and lashes easily to my stool and dolly with a bungee cable...not for New Yawkuhzz, I admit, but perfect for midwesterners and anyone else who takes a car to the gig. I'll try the 208 tonight, but so far, this has been an experiment with extremely pleasing results.
