I ended up getting the Labs but never took them out. I've just been taking out my modded reflex with the its own amp, and lately I've just been bypassing the on board amp. Still, it's too heavy, even if it is 1/3 the Labs.
So I'm back to considering the Carvin or the Peavey again. Carvin has less sensitivity, but more deep bass. Peavey cancels out some of the even order distortion, so I assume it sounds more sterile and less meaty than a normal reflex.
