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.
In my case a Turbo'd MFW will have cost me around $1150. The SVS PB13u is no slouch, but at $1798 it would have to perform significantly better to be worth that chunk of change- and I'm not even confident it would outperform a turbo'd MFW in every aspect, much less by 50%. In fact, I could turbo upgrade all three of my stacked MFWs for less than dual PB13u's.
Now, I'm pretty happy with my value in 3x stacked non-turbo'd MFWs, and I have little doubt they outgun a single PB13u handily (for 1/3 less coin). If anything, I'd expect a turbo'd MFW to perform like dual MFWs do now output-wise, and in that case I think you'll find the SVS is stronger in some areas, and a turbo'd MFW is stronger in others. The price difference makes it an easy choice.
It doesn't tell the whole story, but it's essentially a 12" driver, 750watt, 7 cu ft vs a 15" driver, 1000watt, 6 cu ft.
I'm more interested in what $1200 options would outperform a single turbo'd MFW-15.
