    Looking for a 2x12 cabinet for my GK 1001RBII head. Obvious choice is the GK Neo 212, which is what I'm leaning toward. Other thought was Avatar. Anything else in this range I'm overlooking? Can be new or used.

    I own and gig a pair of GK Neo 212 cabs. First rate equipment that stands up to anything. Absolute bargain for what they are.

    I've used a couple in my day--SWR Bigfoot, which I really liked and weighed as much as most NEO cabs, an Aguilar GS212 which has been my favorite so far, and an Uber 212, which sounded great (a little too modern for my tastes) but is ergonomically ridiculous. Next up may be a Dr Bass 2460 (if I can sell my Aggie) which is for sale locally and at a reasonable price.

    I've been hearing that quite a bit. Plus the fact that I found a used one for below $400 and I can use the RB's biamp feature really makes me think it's the one to go with.

    Went ahead and ordered a GK Neo 212 from MF. Wanted to get it while the 15% off coupon code was still good. Should have it by the end of the week!:bassist:

    +1, I cannot think of one thing that disappoints me about my GK Neo 212-II plus it would match your head in brand. Snazzy!

    Genz Benz Neo 212's go between $500-$600 depending on their used condition.
