    I'll keep this short.

    I have a Genz Benz gbe 1200 with a ray 34ca (equipped with the nordstrand mm4.2 pup and Aguilar 3 band preamp) playing through an Aguilar gs 412. It's awesome.

    I play from foo fighters style to RHCP to black sabbath to Curtis mayfield.. A fairly wide range.

    My only complaint is that it seems like the gs 412 is pretty boomy, giving it a muddy sound that is really hard to dial out, especially at high volume. I'm thinking about going to the db 412 for it's less mid scooped sound and rear port, thinking it'll cut that boominess. Does that make sense or should I stick with the GS and find another solution?

    I prefer the tone of the DB series by a mile. More old school, less modern low end.
