It's probably just a dead plate amp like everyone else. Your better off buying a Behringer iNuke amplifier and following my directions above. The cost of the Empire + Behringer is still better than the competition. (Your only $250 away from it working again).

Knowing what I know now, I would have paid the same price for the subwoofers without a built in amplifier.

Thanks, I am aware the amp is dead. I just don't want to bother with using an external amp. I am looking to see if it is worth selling this thing with a dead amp or not. I plan on buying a pair of HSU Research VTF15HMk2's. I was trying to get others opinions if I would be able to sell it or not with a dead amp and if so what is a fair price to sell it?

I think it's like any sub that size, just a limited number of takers within a particular geographic area at a given time, especially one who would have to do what you don't want to do....as far as price I'd pay maybe $200 for something like that but you'd have to be pretty close. What area are you in? How about a friend who has the space and no sub to get them started?

I agree. $200-250 would be a great deal to the right buyer, but it may take a while to find him. I'd just advertise here and on craigslist. Someone will eventually buy it, heck, I found a buyer for my plate amps. I have 2 Empires running on my iNuke 6000 and they are phenomenal. I don't think I'll sell them until I move and build a dedicated theater with DIY 18" subs and speakers behind the screen...even then, they might end up somewhere else. I really like them and I really really like the enclosure materials. Such a great design.

Also, looks like SVS is having a sale this weekend, Dunno if you were considering them...I haven't looked at subs since buying my Empires.

If I were you, I'd buy a iNuke 6000 and shop for another Empire. Those VTF15HMk2's look nice though.

Owners Manual

Hi, looking for owner's manual for Epik Subwoofer, actually just a copy is all I need. Just not sure which model I purchased several years ago! Single 15" driver with single large port on front of fairly large cabinet. (18" W , 26" High, 26" deep) Lost item in move and unit has been on hiatus for maybe 8 or more years. If you recognize this unit or have the manual, I'd be happy to send you $10 for a copy.


Thanks, Bill

Ps You don't have an Empire....maybe the Conquest? Scroll thru the thread pics...

Well I finally found the picture of my sub - it's a Castle. So Epik never sent out any information or user manuals with their subs? That would certainly explain why I don't have one! Anybody have some info on my model? Thanks in advance.

General intructions. In the LFE setting, crossover is removed from signal pass and adj dial is inop? Proper use of phase control. How many watts is the amp? Do I pass the AC through my power conditioner or go straight out of the wall? etc.....thanks for assisting me.
