Seeking Advice

Daveds50, and anyone else who cares to chime in,

I bought my A3-300 back in Apr 2008. This must have been one of the original ones with the downfiring driver which I upgraded to the 13Ov2 Dual coil, and this one came with an LT 350 amp. The label "LT 350" is a sticker that is covering the original label what ever it is.

Anyway the sub is actually still working but I'm interested in avoiding the failure modes that plague this subwoofer.

It looks like my best bet is to replace the driver with the Infinity 1260W before the coils on my driver short and take out the amp. There is no indication this is happening, but I don't tax the sub like I used to.

I'm wondering if I should also have the caps replaced on the amp? Daveds50, do you still do this maintenance on this amp? Is it worth it to replace these before they fail and do more damage? I don't care to mod the box to replace it with a different amp. I'm looking for an affordable way to keep this sub going for several more years.

Thanks...

Here is a link to my post back in 2008 when I got the sub.....
