    Can anyone recommend an amp that would go well with:

    GK 410BLX-II (400w, 8ohms)
    GK 115BLX-II (200W, 8ohms)

    I play rock with neither the drummer or guitarist being super loud in mid size venues. I am looking for something (aren't we all) moderately priced, dependable, and able to be on the loud side if needed.

    Thanks in advance,

    Dan

    A GK 700RB or 1001RB?

    The GK1001 mark II may fit the bill, but at 700 watts, not sure if that is enough for "superloud". I can't imagine the GK heads would sound bad with the GK cabs, they sound great with other speakers usually.

    A used SVT-ii (non pro) might get the job done. I dont have a lot of experience with BLX cabs.
