    IMHO that is not enough juice to push the 18.

    I think you're right. 100 watts pushing an 18 AND two 8's is not gonna have any headroom.
     
  4. You really need 300 or more for that cab.

    You could do better for that much money anyway. Good luck!

    That Cab. is a POS. Ive used 'em.
    The only cab in the world that has two 8's, an 18,
    and no highs or lows, just a bunch of mid junk.
    The single worst cab I've ever played through.

    The 200 RCB however, is the best thing GK ever made. IMHO. I have one and love it. It's suitable for practice and small acoustic gigs but it's main value is as a preamp.
    It has one of the most user freindly, transparent sounding compressors I've ever run into and the chorus sounds great for slap or faking fretless lines.
    D.I. sounds great.

    Come out of the balanced out mono into a power amp and it kills.

    If you can get the RCB for $150 (that's all its worth, people don't realize it's a great preamp)
    I'd be all over it.
     
  7. ok thanks for your help everyone. i think i will pass on the offer. i am tight on money right now as it is. i need to save money for a car.
