NAD! GK MB212-II

Discussion in 'Amps and Cabs [BG]' started by shawshank72, Feb 7, 2016.


  1. I was once seriously considering the GK MB210 combo with the option for the 210MBE extension cab (now discontinued) as I always thought my ultimate rig would include 4 10's. But I have since learned the "2x12" would be a much more sensible approach for my purpose.

    I'm with @twinjet in that I do prefer separate heads and cabs in order to keep everything modular and flexible.

    My future (hopefully not too distant) rig: GK MB500/MB200 + GK Neo 112-II (x2, vertically stacked)

    That said, there is nothing too shabby about the MB212-II combo. Congrats on your nice acquisition, @shawshank72 ! :thumbsup:

    How does this combo handle the low B? I've been looking for 'lighter' and also want the vertical speaker array - this cab and the 212 extension look like they would cover everything I need, just need to make sure that the low B cuts through.

    My only concern is that I am running the 4ohm CX410, so I'd be going from 800 watts through 4 10s to 500 through 2 12s. Wondering how much I'd notice the decrease.

    I assume it would be fine, but I'm kind of wondering this too.

    In my situation i dont.
    If your maxxing out your amp when you play IMO you may well notice it.
    If your playing with plenty of headroom i would say no.
    All just my opinions.

    I noticed that Norm Stockton used one of the combos. He's an MTD guy with a 5-string, so I would imagine that the low B is not an issue.
     
  7. Although not quite the same I can tell you that the MB410-II easily handles a low B at any volume. Don't see why the MB212-II wouldn't either.

    Even with the pad turned on I don't think I've ever turned the volume past 10 o clock. And that's never with my bass volume past 80%. It just has so much power. So yeah, I have plenty of headroom.

    Good combos. I have mine sitting on top of a MBP115. Definitely loud enough for most any club you'd be playing at.

    I can say the same thing with my Neo 112 cab in one hand and one bass on the other while the MBF500 amp is in the bass gig bag. YMMV.
