    Would one of these cabinets alone be sufficient for live use. I usually use one Ampeg classic 210, and sometimes two of them. What's your opinion on the sound of it?

    I have been checking the DB112 out. Great cabinet. They have a much more foward sounding mid range and are more old school than the GS series. Exactly what I like in a cabinet. Modern hi-fi, crisp and clean just ain't my thing. but I don't think just one would do the job in a band setting. Also with the cabinet's dimension, weight, and only having one handle, I find it awkward to move, but maybe that's just me. In January they are coming out with a DB212, DB412, and a DB115. I think I am waiting to check out either the DB212 or maybe the DB210 with a DB115 setup. Both sound like they are going to be awesome cabinets!

    Any other opinions on gigging with just a 12" speaker? I usually do 2 10s, so I do prefer smaller cabinets.

    I own two GS112s. I use both of them simply because two of them sound better than one.

    I guess you could get by with only one in a quiet/small enough setting.

    Like others have said, one GS112 works just fine for rehearsal or small rooms for me. But comparing one 12 to a 2-10 cabinet, the 2-10 will usually have the edge on overall output. There's only so much one driver of that size will do.

    As a general rule I always bring both my GS112's to a gig these days and there are few rooms that is insufficient for.

    ADDING one 12 to your 2-10 is a very compact way of significantly boosting your horsepower, just food for thought.
