    Curious if anyone's gigged with a Genz Shuttle 6.0 and twin Focus 112 cabs. If so, what size room's max advisable?

    I probably would have bought two of these cabs if they'd existed. I went for two GK Neo 112 IIs, great cabs as well. I have a GB Shuttle 6.0 as well. Of course, the cabs are not the same, but my rig has played fairly large outdoor venues, miked of course. With them stacked vertically, I can hear them just fine at most gigs. I think you have a great rig and can rock it anywhere. I'm sure others will chime in about the combo you have. :)

    I gigged a Shuttle 6.0 with two Traynor TC112 cabs (stacked vertically). I was able to play a small/medium size bar with virtually no PA support - the sound guy said he preferred the sound coming off the rig than what he was getting for me going through the PA, if you can believe that. Anyway, I was nowhere even close to running the amp flat out…I don't even know if I was at noon on the master.

    I have the same experience with a Carvin head and two DB 12" cabs. Never had a problem hearing myself and actually have been told to dial it back onstage by the sound guy. I'm pumping 275w into each cab and have gone un-miked in medium size clubs. I have buddies who do festival gigs with less because they have big monitor support. Basically in situations where all the drums are mic'd, they should be mic'ing the bass also.

    Okay, great, thanks. These Focus cabs were inexpensive, sound really good and they're very lightweight, so onward and upward....

    That rig will sound fine in up to medium size venues if you have to carry the whole place. I gigged a Shuttle 6.0 and two GB Neox-112s. Loved the sound of a pair as opposed to just one cab. Something magical about a dual-driver coupling.

    For a while I used my Shuttle 6.0-12T combo with a second 12T extension cabinet. Sounded great. Small footprint. Easy schlep. I agree with the comment of it being good up to medium sized venues if you're carrying the place. Anything more and you should have PA support anyway, still useful as your on-stage monitor.
