    are they out yet?!
    are they out yet?!!!

    I've been waiting so long. I now have enough to buy two amps. No I'm not buying two amps and I don't want to spend the extra bit of cash on a more expensive amp.

    could I be the conquerer of GAS.

    that can be in another thread.

    anyways... the new GK's with the hotter sounding preamps and the bigger power section is something I've been antisipating for some time now. It's been months and I've yet to have bought a new amp.

    information please!

    I really don't need to wait until June or July.

    I thought I heard late march early april?

    they were there at NAMM.

    what's up with that.

    Trip, you out there?or anyone else for that matter! info please if you have any.

  4. Dude, Trip has parted company with GK. There was a Megathread on it. Someone named Daniel Elliott has taken over his former post. ask him.

    I know I was in on the thread

    Trip however was selling gear including the new sbx cabs at namm

    but info from Daniel Elliott wouldn't hurt!
  6. Hi guys,
    We're just waiting for safety approval now. Probably at the end of May, we'll be shipping them out.

    When will those SBX cabs be out? Could you tell me what models they'll be available in (2x10, 1x15 etc.), what they'll look like (color and design). Maybe the estimated price (not list but the price retailers will be selling them for)?

    "Safety Approval". Is it just me or does that sound dangerous :)
  9. The SBX cabs are basically the RBS cabs with a tweeter added. 210, 410, 115. The woofer has been replaced with what I think is a more musical sounding speaker as well. They should be shipping in about a month or so.

    We're thinking about doing a 4x8 and a 112 in a more compact box. Any thoughts?

    I like the idea of a 112! I've been really impressed by what companies have been doing with them. I really liked the 400RB 112 combo. However I'm more of a 210 410 person myself

    as for a 4 X 8 - get somebody elses opinion.

    End of May :(
    - that's another month. This will be the time determining whether I'm a true GK fan or not. I'm trying out a eden CXC 210 this week.

    If I do wait it had better be worth it! if I don't it means that I like the eden.

    I would love a 112 to go with my 700rb/112 combo.

    When when when when?

  13. I dig 4x8's !!! I've played ampeg's and I own swr's 4x8. The Swr's better but I'm probably saying this because I own it :)

    NAMM= not available maybe may!:D
  15. If you're talking about the 250ML, I don't have a release date on that yet. Probably early next year.
  16. They're just ideas that may or may not happen at this point. But I'm glad to hear you like the idea.

    A GK 4x8 would kick ass. I'd like to a see a 6x10 too.
