    I love my GK 212. I think it is available 4 ohm which I would recommend to get the most from the mb200.

    I believe they discontinued the 4ohm NEO212-II?

    Has anyone tried an Aguilar DB112 with the MB200?

    I run either a GK NEO 112 or a GK NEO 212 cab with my MB200. All depends on what the needs are.

    One group I play with in a regular gig, 100-150 ish sized bar, 4 piece (drums, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass) I use the 212 cab. Granted, there isn't tons of headroom available, but it is possible for me to be too loud. So that's actually a perfect rig for that venue.

    Another regular gig is a jazz/blues duo, and I use the 112 cab for that. Perfect small easy to handle size.

    At the end of the day, I really don't think there'll be a whole lot of difference between a 4 or 8 ohm cab. But there is a difference between one or two 12" speakers.
  6. I would recommend an 8 Ohm cab, so you can get a second matching cab down the road if you want. You might gain the smallest amount of clean head room with a 4 Ohm cab, but at that level you will be pushing your cab really hard. Better to get one 8 Ohm cab now, and if you find you need more add a second.
