Since you are in the UK I'm not sure if shipping would be free, but I've ordered several movies from amazon.uk that were shipped free or cheaply.

 

Thanks - I tried putting it in my basket but they don't ship to the UK unfortunately. I do often buy stuff from Amazon in the US though and am always impressed by how quickly it gets here - usually I have it 5 days after ordering.

If you don't want to upgrade to the new HP+ amp, just contact Mark and ask him about a repair.  If the problem with yours is just a connection, any competent local repair shop should be able to fix it easily enough though. Might be worth pulling the amp and taking it in for someone to check?

The problem us guys not in the USA have is that the cost of shipping in two directions can be almost the same as buying a new amp.

Mine came with a pre-owned amp as well. The warranty on the pre-owned amp is 2 years so I am still within the warranty period. Will contact mark and see what he suggests.

Silly question SubM owners.

Did you save the box your SubM came in? I normally save my boxes but this thing doesn't fit anywhere!!

If there is ever an issue requiring repair shipping, it'll be the Amp or driver(s) and I would think that would involve disassembly and shipping in a separate box and not returning this monster.

And these are famous last words I know, but I'm loving my single and can't imagine anyone needing multiples!! wink.gif

Wife knew I was wiring for duals and has asked me when the 2nd one arrives. I'd hate to disappoint the little lady!!

Cut the tape at both ends and fold up the box.

Once the box is flat it's much easier to store - garage, attic, etc. I am assuming that the OP's point was that he didn’t have room to store a huge box.

I think that the "Packing Materials" refers to the uncompressible foam that is packed around the speakers. (Inside the box)

I just throw that into my attic storage space. It's the huge cardboard box that is the problem for me.

Hi guys,

I'm back in town after the first week long vacation I can remember taking since starting Seaton Sound. It was a good test for some of the additional help I've brought on since November and the duties which have been delegated and highlighted what else is still needed. If you look at the availability post on our forum, you will see many things are due in over this and the next 2-3 weeks. We were able to ship out all standard products we received cabinets for last week while I was out, and orders taken this week won't ship out any later than those taken last week. We have many things ramping up and coming together before the big demonstration here in Chicago for Axpona at the end of April. Please bear with us between now and then, and thank you for the continued support.

To make the choice of what to do with the packing a little easier to calculate/figure, note we do offer customers to purchase replacement packing for any product very close to our cost. The current SubMersive packing is available for $60. Due to the dimensions, shipping is still $100-130, or $195-230 for pairs, but this allows customers to make their own determination of the cost/value in keeping the packing which can be had at any time in the future.

My new HPi+ amp and slave plate are on their way!  12 AWG 4 core speaker cable and Speakon connectors arrived this morning from Germany, so I am all set and waiting for the upgrade.

 

I’d like to thank Mark publicly for the generous deal he made for me and for the full credit for my existing 1,000 watt amps. Mark arranges the return carriage of the original amps, so all I have to do after swapping them out is put them in the box the new amp came in and call Fedex to collect. Couldn't be easier. I continue to be a very, very happy customer of Seaton Sound and am looking forward greatly to the upgrade of my fabulous dual F2s.  Thanks again, Mark!

Awesome Keith, now my ulterior motive, looking forward to hear about tips on how to integrate a M&S setup :-)

The amp and slave plate have arrived in the UK. Just go to wait for the Customs Monkeys to do their job now. 

 

I'm not expecting much integration work TBH. I had two subs before and I will have two subs again - the only difference (apart from all the extra power) will be that from now in I will be treating the two subs as one, which in my case is OK because they are almost equidistant from the MLP (one foot difference, the effect of which is inaudible). I will therefore not need to set individual levels or delays and it will make running and using Audyssey simpler for me. Of course, I will post my experience here once I have them installed.

post #9077 of 9402

My amp and slave plate were delivered at 9.30 this morning!  They are now installed. Wow!

 

I haven't calibrated the system again yet so it is just set up as it was before - I checked the subs SPL with my meter to set it to where it was before and let it rip. Already I can tell that this was one worthwhile upgrade.

 

I'll post a full description and evaluation soon.

 

Mark - thanks again for your help and the great deal on the upgrade - it is truly appreciated.

Mine are coming on Monday (hopefully) or Wednesday. Should be knock out editions to my theater!

Good stuff Bland. I am sure they will make a very nice addition to your setup.
post #9081 of 9402
I can recommend that anyone getting a new SubMersive or doing the upgrade that they watch Die Hard 5. It is a fantastic movie for the sound track, especially the bass. I still love my HP going on 7 years now since I bought the original.

I've got dibs on that one. I met my wife on the USS MIAMI 8 years ago. Don't think many can say they met their wife underway on a sub but there we were. Shame what happened to her, she was a good boat.

Also, those looking for new demo material are in for a treat with Gravity next week. One of the most aggressive low bass soundtracks I've heard in awhile. Truly feeling more of the movie than you're hearing.

Do you folks leave your submersive powered on 24x7?

I used to. Now I use a remote controlled outlet.

Despite the Amazon listing/description, it can handle 16A.

I did for about 4 years but they are now on a switchable outlet.

I have always left mine powered on. The thinking is that the big transients that occur at switch-on are not so good for electronics gear. IDK if it's true - people always cite how a light bulb only ever fails when it is switched on. I don't even know what the Submersives use as current when idling - it could be significant I guess. I tend to leave most things switched on unless they have moving parts inside them (which move even when they are not 'doing' anything). ICBW of course and I have the electricity bill to prove it :)

The only time I shut mine off is after I run Audyssey... and then it's only momentarily while I switch from Pgm1 to Pgm2. biggrin.gif

LOL.  Oh yes - I forgot that. That's when I switch mine off too :) And 5 seconds later, back on....

No. All of my Seaton gear is powered by a 45 Amp circuit. This allows me to use a contactor to control it. My Integra provides a signal to a solid state relay which controls a contactor to turn on / off my 120VAC gear & a control to my 240VAC circuit.

System control via remote.
