Dr. Bass vs GK cabs for a vintage sound?

    I asked a slightly different question a few days ago, and have decided to rephrase it.

    I'm going for a mostly vintage sound with my band and I'm currently playing through a GK 410rbh. I'm thinking of adding the matching GK 15", but another part of me likes what I hear about Dr. Bass (and the lighter weight cabs) and I'm considering dumping the 410 to get a dr bass 15 paired with a 310 or a 212, so I'm wondering: between the GK RBH cabs and the Dr. Bass BL series, which would give me a more "vintage" (read: less sterile) sound?

    Also, if there's a noticeable difference in tone between the dr bass RX and BL series, which would be better for my application? I'm playing a Jazz bass strung with flats (with a dunlop nylon jazz pick) thru a GK 2001RB, for reference. And yes, i know that amp isn't exactly a vintage sound, but i like the flexibility for now while i'm finding my sound. Thanks!

    I would have to say the DR Bass BL cabs with traditional speakers, instead of the Neo drivers.
