I need a live amp-setup and I was just about to pull the trigger on a Rocktron Velocity 300 power amp and a Laney GS2121IE 2x12 closed back cab to use with my POD HD500.
I have a Mesa F-50 combo (with one 12" speaker) and I was thinking this may not work well live since it's only one speaker and it's an open back. From what I have read a closed back will be tighter.
I have a metal band and we are still working on getting a set together, but we are hoping on playing gigs in the near future, so I am already trying to figure out what to use then.
What do you guys suggest, what's the best out of these options I have:
use the Mesa F-50 combo and get an extension cab (1x12 or 2X12) maybe use the HD500 along with it.
get the Rocktron power amp and the Laney 2x12 cab and use the HD500 as a pre amp?
Any advice/suggestions are appreciated!

I'd say grab a cab and use it with the Mesa and 4-cable in the HD500. Awesome versatility with awesome Mesa tone thrown in.
