Given all of the expressed uncertainties as to practical power/volume, I think I'm best served by ruminating over this further & continuing to experiment with different combinations of settings on my current rig. I appreciate all of the replies.
Jon, I'm usually running half of an MC250 into a 1x12 JBL E120. Sometimes I hook the other side to 2x12 K120s at the same time, just to surround myself entirely. At home, this is a very full but crippling loud setup if I try to push it even a bit. What I haven't done yet, though, is to bridge the MC250 to double the power. Maybe someone else has done this bridging and can comment, but one of the reasons I went with the MC250 was that I'm mostly at home and running 50 watts (or thereabouts) more than cuts it but I liked the idea of the bridging option being available to power up for full outdoors levels. Again, I've never yet done this but assuming it doesn't kill the tone, it might be a good option for you to have. And the MC250 isn't quite as heavy as a 2100 (though no RV300 in the weight dept.)...I know you hate carrying weight around!
Can anyone comment on bridging the MC250. Viable option for maintaining tone but simply increasing power???
