With my upcoming tax return this year, I am going to purchase a GK 410 RBX. Its an 800 watt, 8 ohm enclosure with four 10" speakers plus horn. I am still trying to decide on what head to purchase though. I was thinking either the GK 700RB-II or the GK 1001RB-II. I am going to purchase another cab for the combo (115 probably) sometime in the future. Should I just spend the extra money and get the 1001RB-II, which will have more power for the future half stack or will the 700RB-II suffice for the full stack?

Thanks in advance for all suggestions/comments.

The only real difference here is 320 watts vs. 460 watts. Personally I think thats a lot of money to spend to only get about 300 watts out of it. Also, if you get the 700RB and add a second cab then you will only be pushing 20 watts less than the 1001RB with only one cab. I'd just get the 1001RB. Sounds like a better deal to me.

Nay, there is also a 1.5 lbs weight difference, but i personally would go with the 1001RB or if you want to upgrade even more i do believe there is a 2000 model or something along those lines
