    I don't really know a whole lot about cabs, so I was just wondering if this set up would work. I am looking at getting a GK 800RB (used), and hooking it up with an avatar 410. I was also wondering if adding a speakerhole 118 would help with the low end, or if this cab is such low quality that it isn't even worth it. Thanks for any help

    edit - I would like to clarify that I have done research on different cabs and heads, I just don't know much about how ohms, or hooking up multiple cabs to a head works out electronics-wise.

    I would get the head and the 4x10, and then decide if I already had enough low end or not. I wouldn't get a Speakerhole cab myself.
  3. Look at the Hartke 3500 head. Good stuff. If your looking for a low end cab get an avatar 1x15 to go with the Avatar 4x10. It is a great setup. I am not sure how speakerhole is but i would not get them. If you don't have the money for a avatar 1x15...look on ebay for some avatars. Sometimes Dave will put them up for auction at lower prices. Do a search for Eminence...You'll find his cabs then. He doesn't title his auctions with Avatar for some reason.

    Good Luck.

    Thanks, I am pretty sure I will begetting the 410, and I was thinking the avatar 115 would be a better choice than the speakerhole. I'll check out that Hartke also
  5. You won't go wrong with the B115. Worth every penny.

    I've got an 800rb for sale $325 shipped. I've been using it w/ an Avatar 210 and a Boogie 1x15 and it sounds great, I'm just upgrading to a component system. Actually, I ordered a Sansamp RBI rackmount preamp that's been on backorder for 7 weeks and a Carvin power amp that I already received. If it wasn't too to return the Carvin I would just return it, cancell the RBI and keep the 800rb.
