Here's the scoop: My band will be playing the Metro in Chicago this August. This is a pretty big gig for us at one of the best club venues in Chicago. I will pee myself many times before we hit the stage. The Metro has a capacity of about 1000, and the band we are opening for has sold it out before, so we are expecting a big crowd. Now, here's the question- Do I use my better sounding 4x10 or my more impressive 8x10? The 8x10 is louder, but sounds more midrangey, and not nearly as tight as the 4x10, which is punchier. The stage is pretty big, but we'll have a really nice monitor setup. I don't think I NEED the 8x10, aside from the fact that it looks cool as hell. But the 4x10 is easier to move, sounds better, and SHOULD be loud enough. I am very unsure.
