I bought an MFW-15 from AV123 back when they first came out and like a lot of people who bought them, had to wait about 2 years before finally receiving mine. Even then it didn't work right. After a replacement arrived I thought everything was fine, but then it started to make some noise and smelled funny (like electrical getting too hot) so I unplugged it and didn't get back to trying to fix it until now.

I just read that AV123 is out of business so I'm not sure what to do. I've got what could be a great sub woofer, but in it's current form it isn't. Can I attempt a fix and if so, how hard and expensive would this be. Or should I just buy a new sub somewhere else and if so what?

Here are the A/V components I have that it would be hooked up to:

Panasonic TH-58PZ700U 58" 1080p Plasma TV

Onkyo TX-NR809 Receiver (should arrive any day now)

Panasonic DMP-BD30 Blu Ray Player

Oppo DV-980H DVD Player

Rocket Speakers (2 RS760, 1 RSC200, & 2 RSS300)

Panamax MAX 5300 EX Line Conditioner

DirecTV HD Satellite Receiver/DVDR in one box

Onkyo DX-C390 CD changer

Thank you in advance for any help.

see the new mfw15 amp thread...talk to MURREL

You can replace the caps in the amp to reduce the HUM..which is what Im sure you're getting as most do.

as for how good it is..well that's up to you i guess. the mfw15 is definitely hard to sell given it's reputation.
