    I bought a GK1001RBH 2X10 combo (or have tried). The one out of the box smoked as soon as I played my first note. Back to the store and got another one. This one the power amp works but,speakers dont work.

    I had bought a 1000GK head a few years ago but, it kept blowing. Intermittent fail. I got rid of it.

    Recently after busting my back witht the old SVT I decided to give the GK1001 2x10 combo a whirl. Iam not comfortable putting my faith in this unit.

    Has anyone else experienced theses issues? Has any one dealt with GK to maybe make me a little more comfortable with this pricey little unit?

    Thanks All

    G-K's have a lot of notable problems.
    I've heard something with the i/o's?

    I've never heard of your speaker problem, but from what I gather the poweramp problem isn't unusual for G-K's. From what I gather, if you play the amp for 1-2 hours at the store, and it works well, it should be fine.

    Usually most problems that people have had with G-K's have seemed to be within the first few hours of playing. :)
