    It might be a little biased but you can also go to the Carvin Forums and read what people are saying about them.

    So far, all I have heard has been positive on the new heads.

    Carvin's not horrible... and neither is GK. but I really think there is just better equipment out there for the money. I honestly have never heard good things from the Backline GK series.

    I truly dont think Carvin is worth much consideration. You would get the power you need.... but its dependability might be questionable.

    I'd probably put brands like Hartke, and SWR ahead of Carvin if your on a really tight budget.
