Is this a good idea?
Can anyone recommend a better head?
It's a great head with enough power to destroy the Avatar. So, if you plan on playing with a group on stage, you'll need to add another cabinet pretty soon. Hopefully you got the Avatar in the 8 ohm version and if you did, you can add another 8 ohm cabinet, bringing the total impedance down to the 4 ohm minimum of the GK. You could get another Avatar. They seem good for the price. Another 2x10 or a 2x12 0r a 4x10 depending on what sound you want.
At any rate, you've got a great sounding head with plenty of power. You just need the speaker compliment to do it justice.
+1 w/ 62bass. Make sure and get an 8ohm cab so you can add to your stack later. Check my sig. ( 2- 8ohm cabs move alot more air than 1- 4 ohm)
Wait... The GK is rated at 480 W, with 50 W going to the tweeter. However, the 2x10 can handle 500 W. So if I got it in the 4ohm version, wouldn't they perfectly compliment?
That power rating tells you when the voice coil of the speaker will melt, NOT when it will be damaged by overexcursion.
A 2x10 is likely not enough to cover the kind of sound pressure levels you will need onstage unless you have full PA support. Pushing a 2x10 with lows at higher volumes will damage the speakers or "blow" them from overexcursion long before the voice coils will melt.
Most times, when someone needs more volume they should add more speaker area instead of adding more watts.
