    If you insist on an Eminence, yes, they make a Neo 18". You'll probably have to eat ramen noodles for a few months. It's $580.00 US.

      Thank you! I currently use a GK 1001-RB, the same head I've been using for 20 years now. I would like to keep it, but I will have to dig around for my manual. I do not even remember what kind of wattage it has. I do know my plan is to run two separate 8 ohm cabs. One of them being a 2x15 (maybe with horns) and the other a 1x18. If my GK has enough power, I might actually be interested in eating ramen noodles for a few months to make this Eminence 1x18 happen.

      This sounds like a rig I would love to piece together. I just do not want to lose my GK tone to get there. I have not checked out the new GK heads, maybe they have something with more power now if I need it.

      I really appreciate you finding both of these speaker options! I have not had much time to look the past few weeks. Thank you very much!

        Dude, these are cool. I had not heard of these until you shared the link here. Thank you. I might want to check one of these out at some point.

            Okay, I think my GK 1001RB-II cranks out 700 watts RMS at 4 ohms. I plan on running the 1x18 alongside a 2x15, each cab at 8 ohms. I am going to go with the Eminence. The only thing I have not decided on is if I will add some kind of bi-amp horn to the 2x15. I really don't use them, but it might be nice to have the option if I ever want it.

            I will try the Eminence woofer with the 1001RB, if I want more power than that I may seek out a used 2001RB or a new 1200 watt GK Fusion head. I will see how the 1001RB pushes the 18 first.
