I initially bought one of these cabs to replace the Peavey 115BLX I was using in combo with a Peavey 1 15 300 watt combo cause I was tired of carrying all that cab for one speaker - surprise! Not only were the mids fabulous, but it produced such a nice tight low end, that I scrapped the peavey 1 - 15 combo I was running with it and bought another 210BLX and brought my old Hartke 2000 out of retirement. A VERY efficent cab that produce a great full range sound without driving them hard. I've heard (on this forum) that the speakers are blown prone, but unless you are running high wattage, I wouldnt worry. I havent had a problem, even at outdoor gigs. Don't expect it to sound like a 1-18 sub and you'll be really happy. I can't wait to match it with a GK head.

I bought this cabinet to keep at home to avoid having to lug my 2x15 cabinet back and forth between my apartment and my practice space. It's ok for noodling around at home, but the cabinet has a really high ended, tinny sound to it. Might sound better if combined with a 1x15 cab, but I wouldn't advise using it for live performances by itself. If you have to choose between one or the other, I'd go with the 1x15.Also, the cabinet, despite its small size, is very heavy and awkward to carry. It'd be a pain to carry along regularly to gigs.

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

had this cab for 1.25 years, and one of the speakers decided to crap out at a gig.the cabinet is a keeper, constructed real well w/rugged grill plate and handles, so tossed the speakers and replaced w/Eminence speakers. now have solid dependable performance, and did not have to deal with the hassel of warranty return shipments, etc. and the risk of getting another bad speaker. summary: nice cabinet / poor quality speakers

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

Hi! Its me again...OLDSCHOOL. Just wanted to add an update to my previous review of the GK 210BLX-II. After 7 mo. of weekly use, this cab is still sounding good, no buzzes or rattles. This is kinda exciting to me, because 2 weeks ago, me and this cab went tumbling down a flight of 8 stairs, and when we hit the landing, I bounced one direction, and the cab another. Everyone was worried about me, but my musicians heart was worried about my cabinet!! I came out of the ordeal with minor bumps and bruises and a damaged ego, but the cab was unscathed!! No loose joints, no cracks, nothing knocked loose internally--NOTHING!! I am amazed!! Last nite was the first gig since the fall, and no rattles, no buzzes-- my 75 Jazz sang, growled, barked, and kicked tail!! Would I buy this cab again? You bet I would!! Treat her with TLC and respect, and she'll be good to you!

Completes my rig!

By OLDSCHOOL

from Pinckneyville, IL

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

My bass rig consisted of a Behringer BX4500H head and a PV 115 cabinet. With it, I had decent volume, but the PV cab doesn't have a tweeter/horn. I had alot of bottom end boom! So my need was to add some mid and hi range to my sound, and also to add another 8 ohms to allow my amp to operate at the desired 4 ohms. I decided a 210 cab would fit the need. I looked at several different ones at different $$ ranges. At a local music shop, I came across this GK 210BLX-II cab. I like that GK changed the looks of the Backline series to look more classy and professional--I didn't care for the original "kindergarten crayon" writing on them. This cab doesn't have a horn, and isn't ported, which is exactly what I wanted. I don't slap and pop in my playing, so no horn needed, and my PV cab is ported, so it provides the bottom end. The lack of these two features also makes the 210BLX-II a little less bulky than other cabs, which keeps my rig from being too big. I am pleased with the midrange punch it has added to my sound, and with the extra 8 ohms, it allows my amp to perform to its design potential. The cab is built rugged and sturdy, but the handles should have been located for better carrying balance. I haven't had any speaker rattling or buzzing. I know the cab's power rating and am careful not to push it past it's limits. But if I ever do blow a speaker, I will replace with stronger ones. Overall, I'm pleased with this cab--good sound,reliable performance, and not bad on the wallet. Try one out--it may be just what you need.

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

I was decently satisfied with this unit until one speaker went from a rattling sound, to just being all out shot! The unit was a value; pricewise, but even the price doesn't justify the low quality speakers. The cabinet is still decent, so I'm looking for a new set of 10s for the box now.

Excited for 2 minutes

By Edgefree

from Naples, Fl

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

Backline 210 BLXI was excited to open the box and plug it in but my excitement turned to pure disappointment when I plugged it in. One speaker rattled within minutes using a 150w crate amp which is less power than the cabinet is rated at. I am very disappointed with this cabinet. Rattling speakers in a new cabinet are not a value at any price.

Great Cab

By al

from white bear lake, MN

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

I bought this cab last year and use it with a GK Backline 600. It sounds great. Awesome tone. Lows, mids and highs sound good. I would suggest getting a 15 to go with it if you want to play any gigs. When cranked up it misses a little bit of the low end. But for practice it's great by itself. All in all, a very good cab. Would defenitly recommend.

Find the missing high end

By The Original God of Thunder

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

I've been back to playing for 5 yrs now and noticed that I have a "blah" high end. I coupled this with 115BLX-II and a Backline 600 and found the missing high end I've been looking for.

ok for home

By Bassman2972

from Indiana

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

So I bought this and the 15 cab new. I run a small power amp and pre amp into them. It has good sound at low volume but clips like crazy when you put anything behind it. They were replaced with better cabs and now set in the corner and used or home practice only. Don't get it if you plan on using it on stage or any live band application. And definitely don't play a five string through them. Can't handle the low end.

More boom for you buck...

By flea_man022

Comments about Gallien-Krueger 210BLX-II Bass Cabinet:

Absolutley amazing cab. Constantly putting it in and taking it out of a car is a hassle becuase of its weight, but the sound qualtiy is amazing for the price. It gets quite loud, the only trouble I have is that the speakers clip when im jammin' with friends, but we play insanely loud. Overall, amazing G-K sound for knock-off price.
