2x12 help

  1. I've been considering switching it up and playing through two, 2x12s for portability sake and because lately I can't get enough of the way they sound. I've been looking around all over for the one thats best for me, and I was just going to buy two of them.

    Here's where I need help. I have decided that I either want to buy GK 212NEO or Avatar B212 Neo. I love the way both cabs sound, but I can't decide which would be the better option.

    Looking for answers on quality, if the bi-amp option with the GK is really that awesome, (I play through a 700RB-II) and what ever comes into buying new cabs, besides the way they sound.

    TL;DR - GK 212Neo vs Avatar B212

    Any and all help will be much appreciated.
     
  2. And if what I wrote is confusing, I'll try to clarify. Sorry, it's a little early for me haha.

    Personally, I would go with the G-K cabs without even thinking of it. The Avatars aren't horrible cabinets, but the overall quality of the G-K stuff is much better.

    IME, IMO, and YMMV, of course. ;)
     
  4. Thanks! I kinda figured that because they're made by a "mainstream" company, but sometimes you see the quality better in smaller companies. Was just wondering.
     
  5. The Avatars use 3/4" ply wood, the boxes them selves are heavier than they need to be. I would go with GK.
     
  6. I wouldn't go with either of those two choices. Genz Benz 212UB are amazing, with neo speakers only 63 lbs. Or EarCandy boxes are supposed to be great too.

    With a GK700RBII?
    GKNeo212's with the biamp option, absolutely.
    The ability to send a slightly gritty signal to the paper drivers, and a clean signal to the horns is a really great thing.
    IMO.

    Light, easy to move, great pairing.
     
  8. Awesome. Thanks for all the help guys.
