    im upgrading this christmas to a Gallien Krueger 400RB mk IV, and im having a little trouble deciding on a cab to accompany it. By the way, im looking to only spend about 300. So I thought i was set on the 300 dollar gallien krueger BLX 410, but then i heard that it does not do well in the low end department, which is where most of my style is im pretty sure.

    im in a pretty heavy post hardcore band, and im not sure if this cab is the right choice. Any good solid cabs that thrive on the low end and are within my price range?

    thanks a ton

    Steelsound 212....I play in a funk/jazz/r&b band most of the time, and gospel choir on Sunday's (soemtimes 3 times/ week) and I never had a problem holdin' down the low end with my Steelsound....and you'll still have $120 left for other G.A.S.

    Do a search, you'll see quite a few positive reviews!

    My 2x10 pro is excellent quality, I am sure his other cabs are the same.

    I dont know much about Dr. Bass or Steelsound, but I havent heard any horrible reviews about them (as opposed to the numerous Backline complaints).

    Ebay is a good source too. I am about to ebay an SWR WM 1x15 and Mesa/Boogie Diesel 1x15, I'm sure theyll go for cheap.
