    Is this going to be a potential problem? Never stacked vertically before. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1394750605.772640.jpg

    Not at all. Not only will they not roll away from you, but to lose floor coupling, you have to have them about 2 1/2 feet off the floor so you've got nothing to worry about. Except for drunks flying into your stage and knocking it over, that is. Usually not a problem if you're not playing punk rock or metal for slam dancers.

    It looks like there are rubber feet only on the sides of the cabs (formerly the bottom). If they don't have them, I would consider installing rubber feet on the bottoms (formerly the sides). Ampeg cabs have the cool feet cups on their stacking cabs, but that might be a bit more work.

    Good call, dmac. I would do the feet, too, or maybe a closed cell foam mat.

    Definitely add the rubber feet to the sides (bottom) of the cabs. It's a really easy and cheap mod.

    Far from it. Quite the contrary in fact.

    I use my two GK 112's in a vertical stack all the time. Never had an issue with stability. The GK Neo cabinets do have corners which allow them to be securely stacked either horizontally or vertically. I agree with the previous posts about adding rubber feet.

    I also stack GK 112s vertically. It works out great in every way. No issues. :cool:
