Any other tips would be appreciated as I'm a novice for the most part at this.

I used a third hand to hold the board vertically. I melted the solder and used a solder sucker to get what I could on both legs, then would melt one side and carefully pull one out as far as it would go, then go to the other leg, until it was out. Used the same method for replacing the cap...long leg first, then short...back and forth.

Glad to see this thread still breathing some life! I'm still enjoying my v1 Turbo Kit that I got back in Mar 2011. My friends are constantly amazed at how much their seats vibrate during some good LFE scenes. This past weekend saw a double-feature of Deadpool and Pacific Rim...yep, the house was definitely rockin'!

Kevin, I might have to peruse the Seaton website about adding a second MFW to my system...

Friday we finally got my Theater back up and running. I upgraded both of my MFW-15's using Mark Seaton's kits.

I am blown away. even at very low volumes you feel the rumble. I am still working out how to use REW to measure my room but I am very confident that I have lows well below 20hz.

The subs are also very musical. When I did the upgrades I plugged an ipod into them to make sure they were working and you could hear decent rhythm.

At about $800 each including shipping this was one of the best values of my room upgrades. Mark claimed a 50% increase (as I recall) in performance. I won't lie, I was skeptical. You can believe it. I think the performance upgrade is closer to 100%.
