I picked up a Hartke 215VX today from guitar center used an got a good price, trading the combo amp I had has left me with no amp. I was able to play a GK goldline 500 and an older peavey through it. I liked the GK better and am pretty set on one of there amps. I'm leaning towards a 700 or 1001rb if the only difference is output, the 700 is 480 watts IIRC so I shouldn't be able to blow the can but this will be my first amp cab rig so I'm a little undecided.

I have owned and gigged a VX215 for many years and have used many different heads with it (Carvin, Peavey, Hartke, Ampeg)...that GK 700 will ROCK that cab nicely! The VX215 is a low end monster, but it does have its limitations. Hartke heads are a fine match as well...I used it with an LH1000 and it sounded great.

You should be able to blow the cab with 480w RMS without trying too hard. Test out a new cab before playing in a loud band, much easier to find the limit without damaging cones.

I was pretty surprised to learn from Robert A Gallien himself of the quality components that went into the G-K Goldline 500. It sounds like one sleeper of a value and you won't be using the Bi-amp of the 700RB II anyway with that cab (but you will still have the 700RB II's main poweramp).

Thanks for the recommendations. I have to save just a bit more money to get the amp but I will definenly check out some of the hartke heads out. My local GC didn't have any to sample to you tube videos will have to suffice.
