Sucked out mids from my Aggie rig

    I'm running an Aguilar DB659 into a Chevin Power amp into a GS112. It sounds amazing when I used it in a big band setting but in other gigs like jazz/pop combos, it seems the mids are being sucked out totally. Most of the time even maxing out the MID knob doesn't give me the sound I want. Anyone has any suggestions or running a similar config and care to share your views? I'm so tempted to add a 2x10 now to give it that extra strength in the mid-range. I'm not saying I don't like the sound now, in fact, I love it's strong bottom that fills the room, just that I sometimes need the mids to be heard.

    I suspect that this is an issue with the GS112. I own a 659, and I find it to be rather midrange present. Can you take any other cabs for a test drive?

    Don't really have access to other cabs. Only other bass cab I've got acces to is a Peavey 115 combo ... which doesn't even come close to sounding as good as the 112 minus the mids.
    Local shops in my areas don't carry very many bass cabs and are not as friendly in allowing pple to try their stuff if I ain't buying. I'm quite fixed on the Aggie S210 if I add a cab and that's not even available in Singapore - gotta ship it in myself. =)
