Depends on your output mode. If you are using one of the Live Output modes on the HD500 and routing its output into a guitar amp's input, then you don't want to use a cab/mic selection and you want to use the PRE (not FULL) amp model in the HD500.
If you are going direct to PA then you likely want to use the FULL amp model with a cab/mic selection in the HD500.

yeah, as far as going direct to a PA or DAW, this approach might work for clean tones, but it will sound horrible for distorted tones.
but if you're plugging into a guitar amp with a speaker designed for a guitar amp, using "no cab" or an output mode other than Studio/Direct is the ideal way to do it.
