why not just get an SVS PB13 ultra instead? something that you will not have problems with and is guaranteed to rock your world? i'm at a loss here.
i have my original 2 mfw-15's and they still work flawlessly...but if i was having problems like you guys are i certainly wouldn't consider a turbo kit as a fix.
Some of us got one or two at a pretty low price, low enough to make the turbo option very viable. The MFW's look great, have gotten wife approval and are integrated into the HT looks wise which for some wives is all they care about.
If I sell them I get to go through the process of which one will the wife tolerate all over again. So, if I spend $750 plus shipping on top of what I paid I still pay less than the cost of an SVS PB13 Ultra and very possibly get similar if not better performance (not saying it will, data isn't out yet).
Adding the turbo kit in my view is a good option for some, you can take the driver and amp from the MFW and build some garage subs that are also pretty potent for next to nothing. I have one basement sub I built from scraps from an MFW and the thing pounds very nicely. If the amp dies I'm out 25 bucks for the box if I never bring it back to life with another amp.
Anyway, just my 6 cents (inflation ya know)...
