I picked up two MFW cabinets from JohnnyV this past week. One must be a prototype since the controller and amplifier don't fit properly. 

I plugged the wire hole so this looks bad, but doesn't affect the sound.

The amplifier hole is a smidge too small, so I used Parts Express single sided tape with a thick border to fill in the gap, it worked perfectly.

Here you can see the spongy tape I used around the amplifier before mounting.

Here is is mounted and air tight.

A resurrected MFW15 using a V2 amplifier and controller, how this amp continues to work is beyond me. I had AV123 replace it due to over-heating but in the cooler basement it seems to run fine. This also is using an early 15" AV123 driver which I'm going to replace with the driver I got from JohnnyV but right now this thing is shaking the basement something incredible. It's no Seaton sub, not even the same neighborhood but for all free parts, all electronics parts were sent as warranty replacements including the driver and the cabinet was given to me by JohnnyV, amazing sound considering.

I plan to use the cabinet I paid for to its potential using Mark's amplifier and the AV123 driver. When it's time I'll be using the Seaton sound drivers and Mark will modify the amps for them which will probably do some damage to the things we have in the living room but that's the price we pay for performance. [biggrin]

Awesome! Glad to see they are living to shake another day. Much better than the life they had been living here. Thanks for picking them up and giving them a new home.

stevesatch,

The V3 I have is weaksauce, it couldn't even drive the sub, it must have been a bad unit, it works but has very little power. Glad you got good ones.

I am wondering if could do the same thing with my old one.
