Ima be there!
I live in New Jersey.
Would love to hear how that new rig works out for you at that outside show. I'm loving my CX210 and contemplating a 2nd one or a Cx115. The new rig looks sweet. I'm sure it sounds equally nice.
I was thinking of buying another Neo112, but I see the price has jumped to $649. That's almost boutique in price.
Guess I'll keep checking the classifieds.
Will definitely let you know. I'm using my 700RB with them this weekend.
So what is the specific question about this arangment? How it sounds? How tall it is? Can I hear it better as its taller?
Just got done playing it in this arrangement.
If my math is correct the two of them vertical is 46 inches tall and the horizontal are 38 inches tall making a difference of 8 inches.
38 inches as they are from the factory stacked horizontal/normal.
Truth since their classified market price should be around $300. Good luck!
So after playing the 210 cabs stacked vertical I cannot hear a dimes worth of difference. Of course I'm not able to direct AB as that would take four cabs and two identical amps. I cant tell a difference anyway. There may be some hearing difference out on the gig as they are 8 inches taller but in my studio with no one in there I cant tell a difference. Perhaps if I played at a lower volume I could tell some difference (I played the amp cranked).
Looking at the height differences, the cx210’s stacked vertically gets almost as close to height as 8x10 Neo Cabs (by like 3 inches away).
Also 3 inches away tall from the Neo 412 cabs stacked horizontally. Very interesting..
I ordered a set of the GK covers that go with the CX210 cabs, they came in today. Thank God, I wasn't wanting to take the cabs out to a gig without the covers. I must say these covers are way better quality than I was expecting. They are padded and are very high quality. At this quality level the price shipped is a good value for sure.
Hey RP, did you get the GK covers, or after-market ones, and from which vendor (if I may ask)?
Sorry I should have clarified that. I got the GK covers off the GK website. You can order them direct from GKs website. They are very nice and padded.

Was just looking around the GK website at speakers, interesting to note the little MB112 and MBP112 replacement is 300w @ 4ohms while the Neo 112 and MB212 replacements are 300w @ 8ohms.
I reckon that gives the little MB112 and MBP112 plenty of room to move with their 200w amps.
Oh yeh, just bought a new MBP112 to build my little stack.
Now I just got to wait 2 weeks for it to get to my part of the world
I have a strong feeling their MB Combos are rated more than what they are labeled
@AstralBirth I think you might be right, the little MB200 amp is rated 140w @ 8ohms, if they are using the same amp in the little combos that are running 4ohm speakers I guess they would be pushing 280w
Nah... they just have a low-mid forward voicing to them. That voice pushes your bass tone forward substantially without using that much more power from the amplifier. I suspect they roll of the really low bass around 50Hz, too to keep more power available for what you actually hear.
Used my MB212-ii last night with my new Am Pro P...sounded great, big full sound but very clear and even. The amp is a bit overkill for this room, but I can load it in one handed.
