  • mfw15 crackle...

    So yet another MFW15 question for those in the know... I'm just about ready to dump this thing and get another sub. I applied the cap fix 2-3 years ago and it worked wonderfully for a while. Then around nov last year it started sounding off, like it was chuffing occasionally when no bass was playing, albeit quietly. When bass was playing, it sounded quite muddled. I decided to be lazy and not look into it. A few days later, there was a crackling sound from the woofer (sounds like a electrolytic popping and fizzing almost) when no sound was playing. At this point I thought screw it, and let the thing die. Then after another few days, no sound at all. I unplugged it thinking the amp crapped out. I finally got around to pulling out the amp thinking another blow cap, except they all looked fine. After plugging everything back in, it sounded normal again. After a few days, it is making the crackling fizzing noise again. after unplugging it, waiting a day, then plugging it back in, it seems to work for a day or two. Anyone have any idea what this could be?

    scc135 - That sounds like the Caps are going, but call this an educated guess.

    If you want a pretty good replacement, our closeout pricing on the VS-18.1 with a Dayton SA-1000 will give you some pretty amazing bass - and it's $895 plus shipping for the package.

      Hey Craig, I would very much like a new sub and the SBE18 is on my list, but funds being what they are, I can't go all Office Space on this MFW just yet.
