    I've recently reached the "rack = cabinet" size barrier

    nope, nothing wrong with you :smug:
  3. Isn't there some unspoken rule about Cabinets being Bigger than the rack?

    Guess you never heard it :D

    You have all that cool gear running through a small 1x12. If I had all that stuff I would have some huge 8x10+2x15 cab setup.
  5. I'de have either two 810s or four 410s, with like really awesome artwork on the front grills if I had that much "rack" the most I'de ever have in a rack I'de think is a power amp, pre-amp, maybe a large EQ, maybe a nifty tuner. Haha. Oh boy, to be able to dream eh?

    I bet it'd look even funnier with the GS112 on top. :smug:

    Put the cab on top of the rack and then you have something special.

    I do. Used to have one of the old Kustom 100 black roll/pleat jobs with 3-15's. It barely fit in the back seat of a full sized sedan. Looked cool but the cheapo CTS speakers farted big-time. I might have to this day if it would have been the 2-15" JBL model.
