    I've ordered an Aguilar GS210 and GS115. The GS210 is on the way but I'm having second thoughts about the GS115.

    The GS115 is backordered so I have had way too much time to think about this! First, the GS210 puts out 102 db 1w/1m and and the GS115 puts out 99 db 1w/1m. The second is size and weight. This stuff has to fit in a Beetle and be manhandled by a fat, old man. There is a third, thing which is not that big a deal, the GS212 is about $100 more than the
    GS115. Also, the GS210 and GS212 are the same depth and width while the GS115 is the same width but a couple inches deeper meaning the interlocking corners won't work on the 210/115 combination.

    I've been thinking the GS212 might be a better match for a couple of reasons. It puts out 103 db 1m/1w and goes slightly lower than the GS115. It is "slightly" smaller than the GS115 and weighs about 10 pounds less.

    I'd appreciate any thoughts you might have on my GS115 vs. GS212 dilemma.

    Unfortunately, the local Aggie dealer doesn't have the 115 or 212 available for demo so I can't check 'em out.

    Thanks in advance!

    PS: These will be driven by my TFB-550 and I play classic rock and blues.

    I use a GS212 and S210 stack and LOVE it! The 212 is a little mid-shy but the 210 makes up for that. Plus, I use them individually as well. FYI, Musiciansfriend is blowing out the S Series cabs. The S210 is $199 and the S410 is $379. That's highway robbery man! I bought my S210 a month ago or so for $329 and that was a steal then (everybody was selling them for $399 then and most still are). Maybe get the S410 and put the GS210 on top of that? The GS212 is a GREAT cab though. LOVE mine!

    It sounds like a nice dilemma to have...

    Thanks Quad. The GS410 is pretty much out of the picture for both weight and size and I'm not a big fan of MDF for speaker cabinets. One day I suppose I'll have to have a 4 ohm 6x10 or 8x10 but I'll need roadies on call first! :crying:

    I would recommend the 212. I previously owned the 115 and was never quite happy with it. It wasn't a bad cab, butI never got what I wanted out of it. BTW, it's all gonna fit in a beetle?!?

    Could you expand a bit on what you "wanted out of it" that you didn't get?

    The 115 should fit in back with a bass. I've had an old GK 115 in there and it is just about the same size as the 212. The 210 can go in the front passenger seat and the amp on the floor, front or rear.

    I think there is enough room to spare for the 115 in place of the 212.
