Another subwoofer amp
Hi there,

I have an AV123 MFW-15. Its amp died 3 years ago, so I ran it with an iNuke 3000DSP. The damn iNuke failed last night. I’m not sure what to do at this point. Do I buy a Crown? Is it better quality?

I have a small 9.5 x 14 ft theater. I’m not looking for tons of power.

When my son's MFW-15 amp died, we powered it with an NX1000. Plenty of power. I can understand wanting to move away from the Berry amps but it's still good bang for the buck.

I've been using crown for a long time, trouble free and quiet. Big fan of the XLS, the only issue being that you need a minidsp for eq, they don't have the nice built in eq like the iNuke series has.

Thanks for the input. So it looks like with another iNuke or a Crown with a MiniDSP is going to set me back at least $350...?

Wondering about replacing the MFW rather than continuing to run it via outboard amp. What would be a step up from it these days? Not necessarily in size, but in quality and quantity of sound?

Maybe the MFW-15 is killing your amps.

The thought had crossed my mind:)

If I were to upgrade from the MFW, what’d be a good step up?
