    It has better capabilities for growl with the 8ohm, only because you're able to push the master and boost up without getting too loud. With the 4 ohm load, you're putting out full wattage from the head, where the 8 ohm is only about 320 watts (not including the tweeter amp).

    If I take my 212 (8ohm), then it has to be a larger stage/venue, because I'm going to dial in some grunt. If I do that on a small stage, I'll be asked to turn down. So, in those cases, I take the 112. On a larger stage, I could take two 112's, but then I'm pushing all 480 watts..... again, I could be too loud. With the 212 at 8ohms I'm only at 320 watts.... crank it baby!

    I know it's a bit to think about, but as you start gigging it around, you'll get a feel for what you need to take. We have a decent PA, and the band's stage volume is not loud (it's great having a guitarist and drummer that are volume savvy), so I can get away with a lot more..... like gigging with only a 112.

    I run my GK700RB II with a Avatar 210. I plan on pairing it with either a 212 or 115 when I start gigging more frequently. Probably going to go with a GK cab.
