    First let me say that I am totally intoxicated with the Aguilar sound. Having said that should I get 2 more GS112's (a total of 4) or an Avatar 410 Neo? Having 4 GS112's would allow me to go small (one cab), medium (two cabs) or large (four cabs). But on the other hand I could get the 410 for less money and it can handle 1200 watts. I play funk, R&B, Mowtown, reggae, and jazz. What would you do?

    Very nice rig! I Couldnt imagnine you would need more then what you have for the type of music you play, except for a large outdoor gig with no PA support. I used to keep a 2x15 mesa cab around for large shows only and just leave my 2 210's at home.

    I would go with the Aguilars, but I agree with the person who asked why you don't just get a larger Aguilar.

    You know, it just really depends on the kind of music I'm playing.

    (BTW, my other head is a GK 700RBII)

    The GK is definitely brighter but the T-Funk is definitely smoother.

    The GK slaps better but the T-Funk does fingerstyle better.

    I dunno. I love each of them for what they are.




    P.S. However I am thinking very hard about the AG500SC. But it will be a while yet before I pull the trigger on any new gear. :crying:

    Endorsing Aguilar Amp product.

    I tried the Ag500 before i buy the thunderfunk.. and i'm really not a fan of the second channel of the Ag500.. and i wasn't impress compare to the other aguilar product.

    the tunderfunk, to my ear, sounded more "your-bass" less colored than the Ag500... and more versatility in the adjustement... (what a cool bass boost)

    i'm really Gassing on 2 GS112 btw.. cause the GS410 sound reeeeaaaallly hot.. the best cab i ever heard.. but what a weight!

    around 100lbs.. would reaally like to have 2 gs1112 for more portability

    good 'ol USA/Tampa fla.
    real nice looking,but 4 single 12' cabs would be too labor intensive for me,but I'm sure with all 4 of them that the tone would be "evil".

    having four seems a bit excessive, awesome but excessive. i Finally reached a point where i found myself pushing my two GS112s a little too hard than i was comfortable with and just said screw it... If it comes down to getting another cab why not just keep one GS112 for small events and a bigger cab for med-large events I personally went with an HT322 (using a DB750) but if you dig the aggie sound stick with it "GS412" which are beautiful and massive...

    here is another way of looking at your back:

    4 x GS112 = 4 x 42lbs = 168lbs
    1 x GS412 = 116lbs

    even with a nice cart or dolly 4 GS112s is a handfull

    p.s. 4 GS112s is a stunning picture btw, I do love the sound of that cabinet

    Let me answers some question:

    Why not a larger Aggie cab? I can get 4 GS 112's plus 2 basses, plus head in my car. Another reason is 98 lbs! And I can get 2 GS-112's for about $600 vs $900 for a GS410.

    Isn't two enough? - Maybe, unless I'm outdoors. 2 more would be - MO BETTA! Even I'm indoors I would still carry 4 if the room was larger, because I play better when I am immersed in low frequencies. I can only imagine what it sound like to play Reggae on the B string through four of these pups.

    Why not keep 1-GS112 and buy a larger cabinet. Again transportability. I can get every thing mentioned above in my Altima without a problem.

    If I went with the 410, it would have to be Avatar Neo - 65 lbs, 1200 watts, & $431.00 vs GS410 - 98 lbs, 700 watts & $900...

    Thanks and keep it comming...

  19. Hey Lowtonejoe,

    How does the TF handle 2 ohms (4x8 ohm cabs paralell)?

    Are you using a custom series/paralell wiring set-up to get 8 ohms?

    Thanks, Kirk

    Not to mention the ever popular 3 stack. Louder than two plus the higher speaker elevation allows you to hear yourself better on stage.
