Well, I've finally sold off some gear so that I can deal with my cab situation. Basically, the HLF 4x10 isn't cutting it. It lacks clarity and punch, and it frequently farts out on some things I do even with a flat EQ. I recently purchased a GK 1001 RB-II, and I'm very impressed. That said, I'm really not sure what cabs I should look at for my particular style. I've played a few things in the stores, including the RBH GK cabs, that sound pretty good, but I'm afraid that will change when the cabs are put through the insane gauntlet that is my band. Currently, I play a chaotic metalish band where I cover both the lower end of the spectrum as well as much of the midrange. I tend to use very aggresive and demanding distortion and play in Drop-D. I hit the strings very strongly in this band and almost exculsively with a pick. Even worse, I frequently do noise loops and "walls of death" that really slam the speakers, often with various degrees of pitchshifting involved. Tonally, I'm looking for something that has the punch of Jesus Lizard or Shellac-ish style punch that also pounds the lowend into your chest on the heavier parts. And given that my band regularly plays in venues that do not have the world's best PA systems, the volume is frequently set to "slay." Given this rather nutty situation, I'm worried that cabs that sound good in the store will crumble under the pressure. I have a budget of around $1000 with a little, although not much, bending room. At the top of the list right now is the GK Neo 412 based on the suggests of the very kind GK rep on here, but I figured I seek out a general opinion. I'm not all that worried about weight, although lighter isn't necessarily bad. And, like I said before, I often have to go without a PA so I need pretty decent "speakerage". Thanks for your time, and I'm excited to hear your suggestions!
