Thanks.

The price has never ever been that low

Please just send me an email at the address in the first post and we can go from there.

I am still filling previous orders but should be caught up over the next 2 weeks.

So these are in stock and ready to ship?!?

Just finding out about this "turbo kit" today. My original MFW-15 still works great and never had issues but I want more. On my quest for another subwoofer I stumbled across this page. I will be in the market for this upgrade mid January only if its in stock. I don't like waiting. Thanks

They are basically in stock as there are no long delays waiting on drivers any more.   I have everything needed but the amps in stock and they only take a day or 2 to get in and then a few days to modify and ship out.   So basically within a 10 or so days I can get a kit out to you.

I have my new Turbo upgrades up and running, thanks sandbagger and Mark! What is the suggested break-in period?

Does " Drive it like you stole it" make sense to you? 

No need to be nice or conservative in the beginning.

Makes sense to me I gain matched both subs and am running a heavy bass track on repeat- about 9 hours so far. I was just wondering if I will see a dB increase once the drivers loosen up.

I'm looking forward to my turbo kit.  Hopefully it will be shipping this week if Kevin had a productive weekend.  I'll post some pictures once I have it up and running.

I just wanted to pass along that I have had my Turbo Kit up and running for about 3 weeks.  Installation was really easy and the results are fantastic.  I am debating purchasing a second kit for my other MFW that is still working, but I would rather just sell the working MFW and keep the one turbo.  It has plenty of output for me.

Kevin was great to deal with.  I got it much quicker than I was anticipating.

My Turbo Kit is installed and sounds amazing.  Only issue is a pop when the amp is activated.  For now I'm leaving it on all the time.  Should I NOT do this?  And does anyone else get the pop? 

The power light on the amp is crazy bright...had to cover it up with some gaffers tape.

After calibrating this thing is a beast producing some tight, clean bass.  I havent had time to run REW to see if I can improve the curve with some EQ, but I will soon.  And I'll also try to get some pics up.

Thanks to Kevin for good communication throughout the purchase, the great packing job, and super fast shipping.

I get a slight pop too when the signal is sensed by the amp, but it's not anything I'm worried about.  I'm leaving it on Auto all the time.

I'm not really worried about it hurting anything.  It just gets annoying when the volume is low and the sub goes from inactive to active every now and then.  This would have never happened before my kids came along, but now I have the HT at "don't wake the 7 month old" volumes sometimes.

I'm a Stars fan, btw.

Good to hear you and a few others reporting back that you are enjoying your Turbo.

I'm not a big fan of the "auto" detection functions.  The OEM did make some changes long ago which made for a more audible turn on, but it's entirely harmless, especially to the Turbo driver.  My recommendation would be to use the 12V trigger found on the majority of receivers these days so it only turns on/off when you want it to.

Had the pleasure of helping a fellow forum member set up his dual MFW-15 Turbo subs in his dedicated theater room. As the former owner of these subs when they were "stock" all I can say is what a difference! Any owners out there with these subs that is hesitant to purchase this kit, I highly recommend it.

Glad everyone is enjoying the Turbo Kits,  and am finally into a few people that post on the forums.  Seems like there for a while everyone that was receiving them were those who didnt frequent the forums.

As for the turn on pop, as Mark said, its nothing to be concerned about.

That's good to know, Mike. I've read some of your posts over at AVS about your CS 18.2 sub. I realise all rooms are different and there are so many other variables, but still, how would you compare these turbos to your CS sub?

Like you said without having them in my room it is hard to say. I know what the stock MFW's sounded like and how they performed in my friends theater room and with the turbo mod the difference is incredible. The room is upstairs so a "floating" floor and now all the seats and risers shake as if buttkickers were installed underneath them. Even driving them to insane levels there was no bottoming or bad noises emitted. Kevin and Seaton sound have produced a winning combination IMO, I know my friend is very happy with the results.

Thanks Mike.

I hope you don't mind if I ask one more question here. I seem to recall reading some perceptions that the CS 18.2 was exceptionally impressive in the way it handled multiple low frequency harmonics, enabling differentiation of several simultaneous low frequency sounds, attacks, and decays in ways you hadn't heard before. Did you get a good enough listen to your friend's turbos to form an opinion about how they perform in this regard?

Thanks again for your feedback.
It is greatly appreciated.

Pat

Don't mind at all Pat. In order for me to accurately answer your question I would have to have the Turbo's in my own room and properly set up. If you are a current owner of a stock MFW and know it's limits then you could easily double that with the mod. The CHT 18.2 sub is a very powerful dual opposed 18" driver sub that uses drivers that excel exceptionally well in the "chest slam" bass region and at the same time digs low, room dependent of course. It comes down to the classic ported sound vs sealed where it is all mostly about personal preference. I will wait until his subs open up a little more with some playing time and give them another listen.

My MFW-15 amp just died.  I don't need the power of a turbo and would be happy with a V3 amp but it looks like I don't have good options except turbo-ing my MFW or buying a new one.  At the cost of new amps, the turbo option is looking decent.

I know many aren't worried about asthetics and it's probably an odd question but am I going to have any issues powering this driver from an amp tucked away in a nearby piece of furniture?  How large is the amp itself and how much heat does it generate?  I'd like to keep my space looking clean if possible.

If my current MFW-15 worked fine, do you agree with this approach or should I go with a new sub?

Thanks for the advice.  I appreciate what you have done for old AV123 owners left holding the bag.  You've done a good thing.

As long as you dont put the amp inside a cabinet and close the doors you should be fine.  if the back or at least the front of it sitting on a shelf is open you should not have any problems

The amp does not create a bunch of heat but can get warm with heavy use at loud volume levels.

Just want to chime in and say the turbo upgrade is awesome. I turbo'd 2 of my MFw's and it was a great decision. One turbo'd MFw is even better than 2 stock. The only change I had to make was to not place the amp on top of the sub. This created vibration sounds from the amps that were very annoying. But all is well since I relocated the amps. Just want to thank Kevin and mark for this option and will be looking to upgrade my 3rd mfw in the near future.
