Update! Running axe II with Mesa 50/50 tube power and passive pa wedges

Update! I tried something unconventional today and I found my sound! Tried my Mesa 50/50 power amp with my pa speaker-an ev sx300. Figured that's basically what the atomic wedges are. Unreal. All the eq and punchiness concerns right outthe window. This is what the axe fx should sound like!! I also rediscovered the presets. Really nice. The expanding Delays preset may be the nicest clean tone I ever heard. So tube power with a good pa cab really works awesomely! Anyone else running like this?

Was that when playing with a band or just on it's own? I have a 50/50 and was considering getting a 2x12 stereo/mono switchable cab and loading it with EVM12ls to see what it sounded like (if it's poo then I can always try a Matrix as others seem to indicate that the EVM12s and the Matrix are a good live set up).

Ran it at home not at a gig yet. But the EVs I have are awesome because I can run the cab sims. I'm not sure if the rig sounds better with the power amp sims on or off yet
