    checked out the aggie 1x12 combo (with the integrated aggie solid state combo).

    * sounds really good!

    * great lows, pretty smooths highs, reasonably good tweeter

    * mids are a little shy, but the aggie amp seems particularly well voiced to compensate for the GS112s inherent mid-shy nature

    * cool looking box, but looks like a bit of a lug

    * seems .... expensive to me (GC price = ~$1700).

    Yeah the 112s are mid shy but I love them. I have 2 GS112's and they're awesome. I've played the combo many times in GC. My cabs aren't a lug at all and the 112 combos tiny and about 60lbs. Simple for 2 people to carry and carryable for one. As for price you should never pay what GC has one the tag. If you know what you're doing ~$1200 should be possible.

    I would recommend the head and cab separately. The head you can get for $1000 and the cab for $400. much easier to carry.
     
  4. I've started using these cabs with no EQ, they just sound so good without any. Give it some more juice and you won't be missing any mids.
