    As far as i know its a 400w @8ohms, 1x12 by aguilar, and I was considering this w/a 2x10 and 400w g-k head. Just wondering if anybody has a setup similar to this and what thier thoughts were on it. thanks!

    If I'm not mistaken, the Aggie 1x12 is rated for 300w... not that it makes much of a difference, just letting you know :)

    I have two Aguilar GS112. They are great small portable cabs. I run them with a Hartke 3500, which isn't a high-end amp and they sound fantastic. Give them a try if you can before buying. I couldn't try them before I bought them but I've never been disappointed with them. Great cabs and very inespensive.

    I bought them at
    very good prices and they made me a deal since I bought two at the same time.

    Hope this helped.

    I have 2 GS112s. I like them because they provide a solid foundation. Having said that, I find they need all the power you can throw at them. For me, I have a Yamaha CP2000 so they get fed real nice. They are a bit inefficient. When I can, I use the with two other cabs: ana Avatar 115 and 210. I ussualy turn down the gain on the Avatar side a bit since I like to bring up the sound from the Aguilars.


    You really can't go wrong with the GS112, but I would want 2 for more carry.

    I'm a recent convert to the GS112 camp and I must say that I have been very pleased with the cabs. I have a pair with another pair on order. Honestly, one has sounded better than I thought it would, based on comments on the forum. Two is definitely much better, though. They don't have the mid snap of my 10s, which, to me, isn't a bad thing. They have a very full sound, yet are clear throughout. The mids are a little weak, but can easily be added back with eq at the amp, or bass-if you play active 3-band. Kinda an 'old school' sound but with the 'hi-fi' top end. Your idea of mixing them with a 210 is a good one...they should compliment each other well. The GS112s seem to be able to handle any reasonable amount of power without distress. I have been amazed at my inability to get them to 'fart' when I tried to 'test their limits'. They just got louder and deeper! I like these little guys!
