    Recently purchased a GK 1001RBII/115 combo for stage monitoring (have PA support) and was wondering which expansion cab would be best when I need that additional stage volume for bigger venues. Choices I'm currently considering include 2x10, 4x10, 1x12, 2x12.

    I would go with a 2x10. They are nicely sized and 15" with 10" sounds nice.

    I use a 1x15 + 2X10 and I'm very happy. My head is GK.
     
  4. I have that very head, and I'm going with a 1x15 + 2x10. Lots of low end, with clear mids and highs. Reasonably sized as well.
    It's a Homebrew 15 with a Peavey Scorpion driver, coupled with an Avatar 210 Delta.

    My only concern is the size of the combo and the size of an additional cabinet. GK's 115 combos are rather awkward sized and their shape makes for an awkward stack. If you end up getting another cabinet, I would not recommend stacking them.

    Albeit, for tonal reasons, I'd likey go with a 210 or 410.
     
  6. If you like the 15 completely, get another, if you want some punch, volume and more clarity, get a 410. If you want punch, clarity and versatility, get a 210. I played a 1001rb with 410/115 on rental for a month and I almost bought it, but it just wasn't me, very awesome rig though.

    Yeah, that was my concern as well, the 115 combo appears to be narrower than the 210 combo so I'm thinking I may have issues lining up the interlock corners if I buy another RBH to go with it.
