    I have had a lot of cabs and that one always shocked me as to how huge it sounded. My wife who has zero ears (and tolerance ) for music, commented on how she liked it best next to a 5150 4x12 and a carvin 4x12 loaded with v-30's. I only have the carvin now and I wished I'd kept that friggin thing. It was super tight and thumpy, I was using it at the time with both either a 5150II or Randall Cyclone and it sounded killer. If you can find one for 300 bills or so you are doing good. I think someone just picked up 2 for 199 each at their local GC though..
    Best of luck.

      Thanks man, I was just wondering cause last night I played thru Lord Toneking's Boogie Mark 4 thru a Genz Benz GFlex 2x12 cab and it sounded killer!! I have a Marshall 1960A & a newer Randall 4x12 loaded with Celestion 70/80 red label's and I'm thinking of picking up one of these or the 4x12 variant!! How's the 4x12 version of the GFlex?!

        I can assure you that The GENZ BENZ 2x12 IS a great CAB.. I have a 1960 4x12 Marshall CAb and still think the Genz Benz sound better (i still own the Genz Benz).. You can't go wrong with a Genz Benz

          I think they are good cabs too, but are priced a little steep in my opinion.

                I have the 4x12 and love it, it's a very balanced sounding cab. Berklee Bill they are a smaller company and considering that there are a ton of them around. If why don't more people use them was a gauge of quality most of the amps that are held in high regard on here would be considered worthless and Krank would be king.

                  They're almost as good as the port city music cabs. *Almost

                  The lows are too woofy coming out of the ports.

                    I have never heard of port city music cabs and my cab isn't woofy at all.

                      I was thinking of picking one up to go under my legacy 4x12...

                        The low frequencies and the air being moved in general escapes the port on these cabs totally differently and really have to be heard to understand. I've heard this same anomolie with all circular ported cabs and the description on port city's site describes what I've heard to the T. I finally got to play one of these cabs at a local studio and it was the best 2X12 I've ever heard. Beats the mess out of the Orange, VHT, Mesas, bogners and Diezel 2X12's.

                        I'm sure these claims raise eyebrows but they truly have to be heard to be believed.

                            I love they way the G-Flex 2x12's look!
                            To me the Orange, Framus, and Avatar 2x12 cabs are ugly as sin.
