GK cross over stuff?

    Not the most savvy with all the GK cross over functions and what have you.

    I recently got a GK 800 RB and GK Neo 1x12. I want to make sure I'm hooking everything up the right way.

    Since the amp doesn't except speakon, I have a regular speaker cable from the cab to the amp - cab is set on full range and attenuator to normal - the cable goes in on the 8 ohm/300 watt of the amp. On the front of the amp I am using the 300 watt master vol. and the push switch is out for full.

    Am I making the most of the power here? Using everything correctly?

    Yeah, you're doing it just fine. Fullrange and plug into the "low" amp jack for what you're doing. The crossover function on the 800rb is to run something like a subwoofer +top, or in my case 12" woofers + 6" top. If you only have one speaker, or a lot of the same type speakers, do what you're doing.

    Sounds like you have everything set up right. I would probably cut the horn back a bit, the horn in my GK cab hisses, and is to brittle sounding for my taste.

    I'm doing the exact same thing with mine, except it's going into a GK Neo212. Man, it's a killer sounding little rig!

    Yea, no kidding!

    I plan on adding a 2x10 eventually.

    That rig zings!
