    So, I've got a Schroeder 1212L, and will soon have a Genz Benz Streamliner 900. I'm looking for a small 1x12 cab to add to the rig. I'd really like to spend less than $500, so I'm intrigued by the MarkBass 121H Traveler, the GK Neo 112, and the MarkBass NY 121. Any suggestions?

    What is the impedance of the 212?

    Then I would find a second 212 if you need more volume than one gives. It might be impossible to find a second 8 Ohm cab that pairs well with that one. No sense in pairing a 112 with that cab.

    Agreed. Since your amp is 4 ohms min, you must pair your current cab with another 8 ohm cab. So, a single 12 paired with a 2x12 means both cabs split the amps power evenly, which further means the 212 gets to split it's half of the power in half again, leaving the 1x12 to carry on with DOUBLE the power of the other 2 spkrs. Recipe for disaster. A 2nd 8 ohm 2x12 will be your best option, preferrably, and identical Schroe 1212L.
