    the rmc deal is too good to pass up.
    the big question now is.. what cab below it?
    matching gk 210, or for a little less $$$
    the avatar neo 212?

    i realize that with the gk i could take full advantage of the head, but from reading most of the reviews here, it's not such a big deal.

    any thoughts greatly appreciated.

    My main rig has been a 700RB head with the 115RBH cab and its nice to be able to dial up the horn from the front of the amp. That being said, I have also run this with a Son of Bertha cabinet and I like it just fine ! I personally don't fiddle much with the horn/tweeter while playing. IMO regardless of whether you get the GK cab, you'll love the head and there's alot of tonal flexibility with whatever cab you choose. :)

    thanks dogbass.
    anyone else here have any thoughts on the gk bi-amp feature?
  4. I've never used it on mine either. I have mainly used 15"s with it and the 800Rb I had before it but am just about to order a Schroeder 1212L for it.

    i don't feel that I have missed anything by not going for a GK cab as I have always had a good sound from it

    I used to use a GK Neo112 and utilized the bi-amp feature on my 1001RB-II for a short while. I found I liked the lower cross-over point by switching to the internal passive cross-over in the cabinet itself. I think the 5K frequency of the tweeter amp in the gK heads is a tad too high. 2.5 or 3K or even 4K lets the horn do more of what it should be doing in my opinion. I sold my GK cab in favor of using others such as Aguilar and Bergantino. Personally I find the bi-amp feature to be a "no factor" .

    It should also be mentioned that rewiring a cab for bi-amping is generally considered to be a simple mod (assuming the cab has a speakon jack).

    I would get the Avatar over any GK cab (RBH series aside).
