wanted: subwoofer box with 12" driver in need of a new amp
« on: June 03, 2019, 09:06:11 PM »
I have found a nice plate amp that I can buy for reasonable $s  that should satisfy my outdoor project. So now I'm looking for a good subwoofer box and driver in need of a new amp... 12" driver would be nice,  ported would work best outside, but sealed could be just fine.  I would gladly swap a working Dayton SUB 1000 for it.  Please let me know what you have.....   thanks guys!

I've still got the behemoth sub you gave me. If that would work for you, let me know.

 I forgot about that. You're not using it?

I have -what was at the time- a TOTL KEF sub that I've been running off an external plate amp.  Doesn't see much use anymore.  If you're interested I'll check the model, etc when I get home.  I know it's black and has a glass top, if that's any help.

It's in use, but not up to its full potential. I've been running it with a Polk 100w plate amp, never got around to finding a higher wattage amp.

Assuming this was directed to me: it is in need of no repair, just that the original amp no longer works, I'm using an external plate amp for it.

It is the KEF AV1 subwoofer as referenced below:

Seems like it would be worth trying to fix properly if the cosmetics are good.
