GK vs Hartke for 212 Cab build?

    I am thinking of building a 212 cab for when I want a little more than my current MB112, without breaking out the PA.

    I am happy with the GK MB112, so my logical option would be to build a 212 using the same drivers, and just taking the current dimensions of my combo and multiplying by 2.

    However, whilst looking at these, I also came across the Hatke 3-15TP6 at the same price, which is the replacement for the Hartke Kickback 15", and I was just curious as to your opinions.

    I do not know the spec on the Hartke speaker (maybe somone can give some input on this), but the GK is 200w @ 4 Ohms, so I would build an 8 Ohm cab, with room to expand if I so wish (my current amp is 300w per channel at 4 Ohms, 2 Ohm stable, and bridgeable at 4 Ohms).

    So, any opinions (positive or negative) would be appreciated!

    I was just amplifying :)ninja:) my thought process, and maybe I should build 2x GK112's with a serial or paralell option on the back, this way I could run 1,2 or 3 112's at any time, all 200w at 4 Ohms.

    The aluminum 15 in the Hartke Kickbacks is really a 6ohm driver, so....

    This costs 344 euros where I live, x2 = 688 euros.

    The driver costs 77 euros, x2 = 154 euros.

    (the amp and wood I already have).
