If I were to go the POD/powered speaker route, how much would I need to plan on spending to get a decent powered speaker that would make good use of the POD amp simulations? The line 6 l2t looks great but man is it pricy.

Bedroom or live gigs?

Something that could do smaller size room gigs as well as home/garage use.

EV ZLX-12P. $399. The Carvins are also pretty good I just use and prefer the EV.

Any active PA wedge, like the ones mentioned above. Pick whatever's good value in the country you live in and suits your budget. I've used lowly store-brand ones (Harley Benton in my case) and found nothing to complain about.

I prefer 12" models, as I find they are typically loud enough for small gigs without a PA and make great monitors when you do use a PA. 15" ones are imo too cumbersome and don't offer any real benefits for most guitarists over a 12" imo, but will sound fine, too. If you need the extra lows, they might be worth it.
10" ones are typically too small to put one foot on and do rockstar-poses. Instant disqualification there, though they'll probably sound nice enough.
Also speaker size is just one of many many factors.

Final piece of advice: If you want to know how loud an active cab is, look at the dB SPL level, not the wattage.

That is a VERY cheap (as opposed to "inexpensive") speaker.
I'd suggest bumping your budget a bit.

Thank you. Big difference between cheap and inexpensive. Definitely like inexpensive but cheap is never a good way to go.
