If the GK is giving you enough volume I have really enjoyed my Clarus and Acme B-1. The B-1 does weigh over 30# but nothing I've tried comes even close to having the low end extension and warmth that it has. The Clarus is the perfect match.
That said, the Crazy 8 is an impressive cabinet. On lower volume gigs, bumping the bass a bit helps in getting a nice, warm tone but it needs an HPF to cut the low bass. Otherwise, the voice coil hits the magnet and that doesn't sound so nice.
The Crazy 8/Clarus together does sound much better and probably go louder than the MB 150S. I don't really know. The last GK I had was on long term loan from a friend and I've returned it.
A thought: The GK is capable a warm tone with a bit of knob twisting. In my experience, most of the tone comes further up the chain. Player, bass, pickup, amp. The amp can only work with what it gets.
