    I currently have a Genz Benz neo1-12" cab the sound is great but I would like to add another cab to have more of a deep bass sound. I had found these 5 cabs that they look good. I heard good comments about each of the company's. I have not had a chance to play them that is why I would like to hear from you witch one you recommend and why.

    add another 112 NeoX to your existing. It will be even deeper and fuller thsan the 212 NeoX. If you want the ultimate 212, try the Genz Uber 212!!

    It's almost always best to add a second identical cab. Assuming you like the tone of your Genz112, adding a second identical cab will give you a lot more volume, and more low end.

    Adding a different cab with different voicing, SPL, etc. can work OK sometimes, but it's a crapshoot.

    Does it mattle if I add another cab from another brand? or it would be better if they are the same?

    By 'identical' I mean the literally identical cabinet... same brand, same model. All these 112 cabs sound quite different, and again, if you like the sound of one GenzNeoX112, you will LOVE the sound of two. There really isn't much advantage at all to add a 'different' cab, and there is a risk that the different voicings/SPL etc. of the cabs won't match up very well, resulting in frequency holes, etc., etc.

    And... two of the same cab stacked looks a lot better also:D

    IMO.

    Genz NEOX-112 all the way - in addition to an extra 12, you keep it modular.

    I wanted an extra cab that will add a little more of a deep bass tone. I don't know if I add another of the same cab I will get that tone. I know it will get louder but how about the bass sound.

    You will notice quite a bit more low end extension. Trust us, get a second identical cab:smug:
