Move Some Air with This Bass Cab

OK, you're a bass player and you want to move some air up onstage. Let's talk about this moving air concept. You know that larger speakers (fifteens, for instance) move more air than smaller ones - that's basic physics. You probably also know that smaller speakers (say, tens) - in quantity - can also move air efficiently. Now, here's where it gets tricky. Larger woofers don't articulate your notes as well as smaller ones. (You can see where this is going, can't you?) The problem is that you aren't playing stadiums, and don't need (or have room for) a coffin-sized bass cab requiring three beefy roadies to lift.

We'll go out on a limb here and suggest that you might be a candidate for twelves. Two 12" woofers, that is, augmented with a high-frequency horn - all loaded inside a compact feather-weight enclosure you stand a good chance of fitting in a car. We're talking about the Gallien-Krueger Neo 212-II bass cabinet.

When it comes to bass cabs, GK knows what they're doing (they've been at it for a while). They've fitted the Neo 212-II with two 12" paragon cast-frame neodymium woofers and a secret weapon: their horn bi-amp system. Running either bi-amped or full-range, this great-sounding enclosure puts out a solid, tight low end and articulated mids and highs. And with a max SPL of 129dB, the Neo 212-II has some serious venue-filling capabilities.

Build quality is GK-tough. Custom interlocking corners and lightweight poplar construction keep the weight low and roadworthiness high. Neo series cabinets incorporate special bracing to eliminate standing waves while providing rock-solid structural support to reduce cabinet resonance - giving your sound definition, projection, and presence. If the Gallien-Krueger Neo 212-II bass cabinet seems like a smart choice to you, then that's what we were thinking, too.

Back saver

I needed a cab for my GK 1001-RB and being somewhat old school I was concerned about this newer genre of lightweight Neo cabs sounding as good as heavy cabs. I was leaning towards the 410 model with the 115 but really wanted to lighten my rig. So I ordered cab Monday and it came to my door Wednesday afternoon just in time for a beach gig (Thanks Sweetwater's Nich Magnami). Played outdoors 50' from the water and the cab was/is awesome. All worries gone. Punched through the mix but still with nice lows like I was used to with my 15. Now my only worry is how can I sneak a second one into the house without the Mrs. realizing it!

Little Big Man

For it's size, weight and cost, this is by far the best and most consistent bass cab that I have played in over 50 years of plucking the strings...and I have played, owned and lugged them all including Sunn, Acoustic, SWR, Eden, Ampeg, Music Man, etc. This GK has a kick-butt low end sound, yet still is tight with a good mid-range, fast articulation for crystal clear rapid sequences and an adjustable high frequency delivered by the P-Audio horn for some crisp overtones and harmonics. I have both Gen 1 and a Gen 2 GK 212 Neo cabs, but this one looks like a Gen 3 with different dimensions. If it's anything like the originals, it should be a knockout. Looks like GK changed its label to "designed and assembled in the USA", which means that the parts might be made overseas. My two cabs are 100% USA manufacture and components, so be advised.

Great Cab

This cab sounds great with my GK 1001 RB head. Very light weight for starters. I can carry the head and cab at the same time!! and not be winded! It can definitely handle low end well along with the rest of the sound spectrum. I've played through the neo 410 and it did sound great but I think this sounds fuller.

GK Neo 212 II... Awesomeness continued!

The need was definitely there for a cabinet with a good pedigree, and after doing my research, my decision was easily made with the Neo 212 II. Great power rating, well made, good portability (50 lbs), decent price. I also decided to try Sweetwater, this time, and couldn't have been more happy, as I netted a great rep, Dan Robinson. Dan not only answered my questions fully, but was also very knowledgeable and patient. I would have given 5 Stars, but shipping box arrived gouged, abrased, and dented, and was noted at both FedEx pickup location, and with Sweetwater... I don't believe the cab was damaged, but handling needs to improve in this area, from both delivery and retail establishments.

Works hard

My papa bear rig is great, and heavy. So heavy I sprained my left arm from bicep to hand. I have sought out and found a great mama bear rig, I have paired this GK 212 NEO with an Aguilar Tone Hammer 500 and the two mated nicely. Among several basses, I'm using a Warwick Streamer LX broadneck fretless which is evil on bass bottoms and easily capable of smelling out bottoms that can't deliver punch at volume. Hence I approached my specialist at Sweetwater with my goal to get powerful punch in a small and light NEO bottom. We started with a Hartke 210 and it couldn't take it. With Sweetwater's return policy I was able to test whether there was enough lightness in this GK 2x12 bottom and, bingo, found the sweet spot. I use it in mid size venues where I'm not DI'ing into mains so I'm pushing it hard - and it delivers. Papa Bear is probably angry, and baby bear sits at home..you may soon see them listed..
