gk head+ which gk cab

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by ludwig109, Mar 2, 2008.

  1. hey, im waiting for the delivery of my brand spanking new Gk1001RB-II head, i was planning on getting the neo2x12 with it but theyre out of stock for a few weeks.. so ive started looking around again.

    now which would be better in your opinion
    a neo 4x10 800 Watts(not sure) RMS at 8 Ohm
    a neo 2x12 600 Watts RMS into 8 Ohms

    the heads 700W@4 Ohm/ 460W@8 Ohm

    im not good on impedance and all that... would the 800 watts of the 4x10 be too much for the head?... im guessing that the 600 of the 2x12 would be ok cause they make a combo with that cab and this head.
    also im planning on eventually adding a 1x15 or 1x18... something for more bottom should i need it. another 8 ohm cab what would be the max wattage i could have and still run ok.

    also anyone that owns one of these any opinions or bad points of these...

    Use either one, you'll be fine. Both are 8 ohm. You don't have to worry about the cab wattage rating in either case. I own a pair of the 2x12's and I've used the 4x10 in passing. In my experience, the 4x10 has a rounder sound to it than the 2x12. You get more speaker area with the 4x10.
  3. what do you mean by rounder?
    and even with an extension cab?

    which is better in your opinion or which would go best with a 1x15/1x18...
    i play a bit of everything really but i like a good slap tone

    i plan on this lasting me a long time so want the right one

    I just got a 1001RB II and I'm using it with an Ampeg 115 SVT cab.

    I tried the GK Neo 412 at the local GC to see how the GK bi-amp feature sounded.

    Do most GK users run the cabs in full range or bi-amp mode?

    GK head & GK cab = bi-amp. Little reason not to.
    GK head & non-GK cab = full range
    non GK head & GK cab = full range
