NO!

I think they were last sold new in 2012. Search this thread and you will find out the exact date.

1) There are no V3 amps
2) No other plate amp will fit in the subs amp cutout.

That's why some of us are trying out pro audio amps.

I am looking to fix up a MFW-15 subwoofer that has a dead amp. I would like the sub box to be in good shape and the driver to be working. I am planning to use a pro audio amp to run it.

I assume at this point everyone who bought these subs and has a dead amplifier has either spend time and money trying to fix it or has given up and the sub has been collecting dust for a long time.

I live in Vancouver, BC, Canada and I would need to pick it up locally. Shipping this sub would be too costly for a non-working sub.

Obviously I don't want to pay a lot for a dead sub. I am looking for someone who is wanting to get rid of it. Based on these forums there are lots of people with these dead subs. Watching movies without bass sucks!
If you haven't fixed it yet you are probably never going to. So, just get a buy a new or used sub and enjoy watching movies again So I then can have your old sub

Question

Has anyone been successful setting up a Behringer iNuke NU1000DSP with these AV123 MFW-15 sub woofers?

I did a decent hack job on the amp plate, removed most of the old amp guts, installed a Speakon connector, connected it to the driver lead, etc. I have two AV123 MFW-15 sub's I refuse to let die - lol.

Current connection flow:

PC Asus Phoebus Xonar Sound card via optical > Yamaha RX-V567BL > LFE RCA cable > Talent Unbalanced/Balanced Converter > XLR Cables > Behringer iNuke NU1000DSP > Speakon Cables > AV123 MFW-15 Sub's



So, with the external amp hooked up, I am getting decent thump from them, but I know they should be able to do better.

I was just checking to see if anyone has had any better settings or suggestions based on what I am uploading. I know of course it probably would take a calibration mic to get them really dialed in, but thats not in the budget at this time, so I have to make due until I add that to my arsenal of tools. Any suggestions?

You need someboost down low, especially in a decent size room. seems like i run 3-6db low shelf starting at like 50hz for my room. This is from memory.

High pass at 18-20hz. LR24 works good.

Why do you have a lowpass set at 33.2?

Check your inputs and make sure your fully driving the amps.

Thank you for the suggestions, it got me moving in the right direction. I immediately started getting better puch from these with lower AMP power. I got to playing more with the DSP settings and so far this is sounding pretty decent. I am still trying to get it to hit a little lower - not louder - but lower. High Pass will not go lower than 20.00. I can get the floor shaking like crazy though with these settings. The mirror on the fireplace downstairs was in potential jeopardy, there was a lot of shaking going on. I am sure I won some love from the neighbors playing with these today. The dual HSU VTF-15H's I bought to replace these are very nice with the HT set up, but these are now rocking my office audio. Its good to feel these alive again.

Im still puzzled why your using a lowpass on the amp.

Are you not already using a lowpass within the AVR?
