    Well, Ive only been playing for less than a year, and all this time ive only dealt with combo amps. Ive been shopping around lately for a new amp/cab, and found a great deal on a 700RB-II. But now, i need cabs to accompany it.

    I was lookin around CL, and found a GK 410 SBK and a 115T, both for $300. I looked on the GK site, and neither were listed, so im guessing these are older models. i also dont know much about them. The seller says they are 400 and 200 watts respectively, which i think would be good for the amp. He also mentions they are both 8 ohm cabs, meaning they would run at 4 ohms together, right?

    So im asking if these cabs are worth the money, and would they work good/sound good with the amp?

    thanks.:help:

    I picked up 700RB-II over the weekend. The shop that I bought the amp from, had a couple of GK 410's and 115. I wanted something smaller that still had enough oomph to handle a 5 string so I checked out an Accugroove cabinet. Played through it and liked the sound so that's what I bought.
    Another bass player who I spoke to, had a GK410 cabinet. It had a nice, clear sound to it so I asked him about it. He said that he liked it a lot but he said that it was heavy.

    The cabs will work well with the GK head. Whether they are worth $300 each depends on their condition. Test them out thoroughly before buying and use your amp and bass. You may be able to negotiate a lower price.

    There's also the option on a pair of Avatar cabinets. You could buy a couple of the Neo 1x12 cabinets and have a loud yet portable rig for not all that much more money. Each cabinet is less than 40 lbs I believe. That's a lot less than the old GK cabinets, although the old GKs will be louder overall if they're working right. A lot depends on your needs.

    thanks for the replies. Ya, cabs are off CL so im a little bit nervous. He didnt mention condition in the listing, so I sent him an email this morning. Ill also try and see if i can test them out before buying (with my amp and bass and all...).

    anyone have an approximate idea how old these cabs are?
