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.

Big sound, lightweight!!!!

Big sound for such a lightweight cabinet. Does not include caster wheels, so I had to install my own for transporting. The tolex covering is cheap & will tear. I run with a GK1001 head. Manual says to "BI-AMP" the cabinet, but I found the "FULL RANGE" setting way better!!!! Overall: Great sounding cabinet for a working musician. But run it in "full range" mode.

Small and loud

I got one of these mostly for its light weight, but also for the 12" speakers. I use it mainly with a Mesa Bass Prodigy and the combination is very powerful. The deep bass extension isn't quite what I had hoped for but it's close. The high range isn't as crisp as my Hartke XL cabs but it can be EQd to be effective. The 12s have a distinctly different sound from my 15" or 10" cabs. This is a good alternative for a small room or tiny stage.
