    When I bought my Th500 the only cabs they had were the GS112s and they sounded great but of course I wanted to hear the other cabs. I read that a lot of people say they like the DB112s as well as a few people with the SL112s.

    I think Ive seen DB112s used the most.

    The lightweight of the SL112s intrigue me.

    I'm pretty happy with the SL112 for gigs where I don't need to be too loud. For gigs with louder rock bands, I recommend a pair of them.

    The SL has an old-school kind of sound. Not the presence and scoop of a lot of more modern-sounding cabs. I like it.

    Apologies on missing that other thread. I read it and appreciate the link.

    The SL112 is interesting because Im constantly on the move with my bass. I put it in my truck and just roll out, lots of jamming, open mics, and then gigging. I was outta work for a few months and as a result of no money had been direct into mixers. Im a "new" bass player. I used to play rhythm guitar but decided to go to bass to jam with some people that needed a bass player, thing is I had no gear! Now that I have a bit of cash I decided to grab that Th500 after I heard it and the price was good. Im thinking of driving down to Dallas and playing through the DB and SL cabs. I would probably be satisfied with any of the Aguilar 12" cabs.

    I play blues/rock. My drummer uses an electric drum kit and my guitar player has a custom shop Strat and a Ceriatone "Dumble". We play in a lot of volume sensative places.
