Argh!!!! Dammit! Curses!!!! Just bought a brand-spanking-in-the-box-new GK 1x15 (200w) for an upcoming outdoor show. I liked the design and the weight and the sound, at least at G%$tar Center. That was my first mistake, buying at GC -- I'm old enough and experienced enough and should have known better....but the price was better than anything I'd seen anywhere, even the 'net... Took it home, played it for 5 min in the garage and it sounds fine. Take it to rhearsal and within an hour at relatively normal volume, it blows the 15. I'm done for the night. Thankfully, there's a small practice amp and I could finish the rehearsal (good thing-- I was getting PAID for that rehearsal, too!) I mean, come the %$&# on. I was running it with my GK 1001RB (the old version - 340w @ 8 ohm) so it's not like I was going nuts. In fact, I was running the volume quite a bit lower than I do with my 10-yr old cheapo Hartke 4x10 Transporter (which the GK was SUPPOSED to replace). The only upside is that at least it wasn't on the gig (which got postponed, BTW, and I would have used it there first had it not been postponed....) Now I have to go back and deal with the meatballs at GC. I know it's not their fault but they're they ones I'm gonna have to work with. I don't want another GK speaker after this. I love their amps but this is my very first experience with their cabs and I'm pretty unhappy... So, I need your collective wisdon regarding my upcoming fight with GC. Anybody else have to go through a similar experience with GC? How did they handle it?
