    Hey all, I have a Shuttle 6.0 combo and a Shuttle 9.0 with a 4x10 Uber. I don’t think I need both heads, but I do need both cabinets. My question is, which head to keep?

    Back in the street racing days we had a saying: There's no replacement for displacement.

    I can't remember what size cabinet the 6.0 combo came with. Single 10? single 12? I'd think the 9.0 could probably blow it up real good if you weren't careful. I'd just keep them both, then you won't have to worry about it.

    It’s a single 12. I’m wondering if the 6 will be enough for the 4x12. I suppose I could get off my ass and head to the space to try.

    I don't think the Shuttle 12T cabinet is a good match with the Uber 410.

    That said, is the Uber 4 ohms or 8 ohms?

    Do you need more than the Uber can deliver, or are you looking for different cabinets for different situations?

    I use the Shuttle 6 combo for club gigs and the Shuttle 9 with the 4x10 for outside gigs. I don’t use them together.

    In this case, I would recommend the 6.0 unless you are VERY careful using the 9.0 with the 112.

    Thanks, Yeah, the 9.0 is crazy power. I don’t need that if the 6.0 can push 375 watts at 8 and 600 at 4

    No need to damage an otherwise perfectly good speaker.
     
  15. Having the uber 4 ohms and you are mostly using the single 12 I say the 6.0 will do you great.
    Keep the 6.0.

  16. Unless you need money, keep them both. Genz Benz, since they are no longer made, are quite collectable these days.

    Keep both. Think backup…

    Gonna cautiously differ from the Zen Master of all things Genz Benz. I use the 9.2 head in the saddle for a 6.2 shuttle cabinet - rarely paired with the add-on cabinet. I never have any of the gain switches past 7, and the master usually hovers in the 4-6 range. The 9.2 is far more authoritative than the 6.2 was, even at lower volume. I get a huge amount of utility out of this combo - one of the great units of all time! If I need more, than I bring a different rig - which probably would sound great with the 9.2, but I'm otherwise using the Subway 800+ or a great old Thunderfunk 750/800.

    On that collectable thing, the GB stuff definitely brings it!

    I use the 6.2 112T combo and 112T EXT for gigs and bring the 9.2 as a backup. The 6.2 has never failed me. I'd keep both heads. But if you must choose between the two...hmmm I'd keep the 9 and be extremely careful with that 112.
