I got sound out of it for a split second then nothing. I checked the fuse and it seems fine, the red light on the plate amp is on and solid. I know it isn't my RCA cable, it works fine with my other sub.

I know this is an older sub after doing research, and I couldn't really find much information online and saw this somewhat active thread on M&K products. I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction as far as troubleshooting what my issue might be, the unit seems to be in great condition and id hate to toss it. Thanks in advance
-Joe
forgot to mention that when I plug the sub in, I can hear the subs power up, is it possible the potentiometer for the gain just crapped out? If so, can anybody point me in the direction of a replacement part?

thanks again for any help.

I just found out that M&K is changing US distribution again. This is likely the reason I haven't gotten more info regarding the noise from the grill on my X12.

This is the explanation I received from M&K Denmark regarding the difference between THX EQ and MK ANECHOIC EQ.

Quote:
EQ position THX EQ is the THX specified response – which is flat down to 30 Hz followed by a roll off – ending at -6dB at 20 Hz.

The MK EQ / MK anechoic is then rolling off a bit more at app 35 Hz to be -12 dB at 20 Hz.
I think the THX specified response referred to here is the Select2 spec for the X10 rather than the Ultra2 spec for the X12 which should be flat down to 20 Hz.

I also found the graph below which supports the MK ANECHOIC having a slightly greater roll off. It comes from an asian language (Chinese?) site: http://www.hiendy.com/hififorum/foru...read&tid=56485

Translated version: [Official test report] MK THX Sound X12 test report

How does a single mx-150 stack up today? I currently have 2 svs cylinder subs and they rock. I have a guy willing to sell me a mx-150 for $400. That's the only piece that's missing from my original 150 system. Would that blend better with the speakers since it was designed together or should I just be happy with my current setup, is $400 to much for a sub of this age?

I have a stupid question. Can the MK Sound Sub X12 be placed on their side? Or will that harm them?

I can't see any reason not to place an X12 on its side. Just put some isolation underneath it.

I can definitely attest to how good the 300 series are.
