  • Just curious...

    If I wanted to upgrade the sub setup, I would need to sell what I had.

    So the question: What do you think I could get for a barely used SVS PB12-NSD and an AV123 MFW-15 Rosewood?

    The MFW has the last batch of Amps that MLS shipped out after claiming he fixed the problems. The amp still likes to loudly chirp if you leave it on auto and there's still a bit of a ground loop hum.

    Otherwise, these two are in good condition. SVS may have a bit of scuffing on the veneer edging. I've been wanting to consolidate for a while, but I was worried with the economy that no one was buying.

    Depending on if you can ship will depend on how easily you could sell coupled with your location.

    I think it would be reasonable to assume you could get $625-650 for the SVS and $300-325 for the MFW.

      Shipping would be a significant pain since I can't fit the SVS box in my car.

      The SVS was bought at $600. Are you thinking of a different model?
      I know they upgraded the driver at least once after I bought mine, not sure about the amp.

          I'm disclosing this all because I'm not looking to pull a fast one on anyone. It's a fantastic movie sub, but the MFW was a much better fit for the rockets.

            Just to add my 2 cents into all this. I've sold about 6 different SVS subs on ebay, and they always sold alot better than what I thought they would. They hold their value extremely well. If your SVS is in excellent condition, I wouldn't be surprised if you could easily get within around 80% of whatever you paid for it retail.

            For the MFW, I've also sold 6 of those online and the earlier quoted price of $300-325 sounds good to me also. It might take some work though to get it sold at that price due to the aura surrounding the MFW, but it can be done. The key with increasing your odds substantially of selling either is if you are able to ship them out.

              "Auto" doesn't function properly and turning on and off manually is the primary cause of these amps dying. Best way to to prolong amp life is to leave it "On".

              Sold my Sept. 2009 MFW-15 V2 (along with a first run V1 and a spare NIB driver) to my neighbor, with full disclosure of the subs' collective history. Told him to just leave it "On", and the original V2 is still pounding away.

              This is the most effective way I have found to eliminate ground loops. http://www.chasehometheater.com/foru...44&postcount=7
