    Guy on my local CL has one for sale for $550. Claims it easily outperforms the Ampeg 810, even though this cab is rated at only 700 watts. Says the front port brings out the bass.

    Thoughts?

    I'd say it's a stretch. 'Easily out performs?' How? Volume? No way. Tone? Maybe, if you prefer it.

    How is the bass response. Do you think $550 is a good price for this cab used?

    He's asking for half the price of a new one, so, not bad but depends on condition.
    I've never heard one. I suggest you bring your bass and try it.

    I had a GS210 at one time and it was a nice sounding cabinet, it takes EQ pretty well, I used it with a GS212 to give it the mids that the GS212 lacked

    Overpowers is strong word. I bought a used GS410 from Atomic Music in the very early 2000's for $500. Sounded amazing. Eventually, it was bested only by a GS412.

    IMO though, an 8x10 paired with an SVT cuts and kills like no other...seriously, like no other...though not entirely my taste for my own sound. There's a reason that combo is legendary. The aggie...classic...awesome...full-bodied, but not legendary.

    Does Aguilar still make the GS series? Almost seems like it went the way of the DB pre's. So close to making legendary status.

    On and btw...i would go back to a full aggie rig in a heartbeat if I was in a touring band still.
