Greetings! Up until a couple days ago, I have been very happy with the performance of my MFW-15 in my home theater setup.
Unfortunately, it started the dreaded constant hum. Even more unfortunate, it is a v1 amp. I am still going to try murrel's cap replacement fix, but my hopes are not high.
So, as a backup plan, I want to start researching a replacement. As mentioned, I was really happy with its performance in my home theater, so I'd like to find something with similar performance. I'd also like to find something that I could buy and receive within the next few weeks.
Right now I am still figuring out the budget, but I'd say there are a couple budget categories I am looking at:
Category 1: subs < $600 (not sure if there will be anything)
Category 2: subs < $1000
So, my ideal would be if there are any options in Cat 1, but realistically, I should be able to get something from Cat 2.
I only really need similar performance, so right now my preference is for the lowest price sub that fits the bill.
