    Comments about Gallien-Krueger 212MBE 600W 2x12 Ultra Light Bass Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    I sold an Avatar 212 cab because of this. I've been gigging this cab with class D heads for a couple of years now because the Avatar was so heavy. In and out of my trunk almost every weekend. Small footprint and excellent performance. I have the 4ohm config and use it as a standalone monitor for stage sound with a loud band. With the genz shuttle 6.2 it really thumps. I run the carvin bx500 on top too with great results. It'll fit in the trunk of a Honda Civic. Great cab for travelling/working players.

    WOW, totally amazed!

    By Evan Pomeranz

    from New York City

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger 212MBE 600W 2x12 Ultra Light Bass Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    This little 2x12 cab has surpassed my expectations altogether. It provides the most crisp and clear sound that is more articulate than any 4x10 cab I've ever used. I have since sold my ampeg 4x10hlf and am using this cabinet in its place. For the money, you will be amazed as I was. 12" speakers provide a more full range of sound, especially a wider and more robust midrange, that you cannot get with 10's. Not to mention, it weighs less than 40 pounds!!!
    This cabinet does not have much on features, its a bass cabinet with 2 12" speakers, plug in and play! It is nice and light which maes it easy to carry, yet still packs a punch.
    Outstanding
    For the money, this is amazing.

    A super convenient and earth shaking cabinet

    By Richard Wronski

    from New Jersey

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger 212MBE 600W 2x12 Ultra Light Bass Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    I've owned this cabinet for about a year now and it has yet to let me down. I power it with a Genz Benz Shuttle 6.0 (another gem) and it sounds fantastic. It handles everything I throw at it, be it low B's or wacky low octave effects - it loves it all. The best feature, besides the great sound, is the weight and portability. I'll have my two basses in a gigbag on my back with my Shuttle 6.0 in it, my pedalboard over one shoulder and my 212MBE in the hand opposite the shouldered gigbag for balance. No issues carrying it all and I don't even break a sweat. You just can't beat this cab. Overall excellent. I can't recommend it enough.
    Two lightweight Neo 12 inchers, a cabinet, output jacks, and a handle. All seem high quality.
    Well built. No issues so far.
    Great sounding, light weight, and priced well. What can be better?

    Disappointed

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger 212MBE 600W 2x12 Ultra Light Bass Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    If you're not going to push it, and weight is an issue, this doesn't sound too bad.
    I paired this cab up with the MB500 head, the head that comes with this cab in the combo version. Sounded pretty good... for a while.

    I was in a loudish stage volume situation for a couple months, maybe 8-10 gigs... well, first the tweeter started buzzzing horribly, so I shut it off... so much for the tweeter.

    Next I thought I blew a speaker, but it turned out that the cab just didn't have the ruggedness to handle the power. It's a vibrating rattle trap now. Thin panels, absolutely no cross bracing, not a shred of damping material...

    Oh well, I'll add PL adhesive, cross bracing and a little damping material and see how it goes.
    Nice drivers, but the cab is cheaply constructed. Fine so low-volume gigs, though.
    For this price it should be more rugged.

    i love this speaker cab.I am using the 4 ohm version with an MB500 head and I could not imagine needing any more volume in any situation.When it arrived I was skeptical because of its small size and weight.Not anymore.It is extremly loud and clear and weighs about A third of what I was using.I cant say enough good things about this cabinet.I dont think it will disapoint!

    No Problems Here

    By Mr Noodle

    from New York

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger 212MBE 600W 2x12 Ultra Light Bass Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    I got one of these at the beginning of december, when It arrived at my doorstep I was extremely impressed with the extremely light weight. I am pairing this with an older GK 400rb and I have more than enough volume. The cab is very midrange heavy, some people find it lacking in bass but I feel like it has a good amount, the high frequencies sound nice through both the speakers and the tweeters. I generally leave the tweeter off as I like a bit of drive and distortion harms tweeters. It does not hiss much though. There are two improvements I feel could be made to this cab. 1) It has a top handle and I cannot fit both hands into it, its not heavy but its easier to move with both hands. It only has 1 Speakon Jack and at some point I might want to buy a second MBE 212 and connect them to a power amp, I think I might just connect one speaker to both sides of the amp. I certainly hope it is reliable, overall i am very satisfied.

    Still waiting

    Comments about Gallien-Krueger 212MBE 600W 2x12 Ultra Light Bass Speaker Cabinet with Horn:

    I had to return the 1st one I ordered for a rattle in the cabinet right out of the box. Then I couldn't plug in to the 1/4" jack. I returned it and the replacement had the same problem with the jack. Sent it back as well. I still haven't heard how it sounds yet!Now waiting for #3 to arrive... who knows...still waiting...
