AMPA new 1000W amp that is well respected and robust (bullet proof). It has been properly customized and matched to the characteristics of the driver and cabinet for optimum output and response along with amp limiting. This 1000W class AB amp can either be placed on a rack, on top of the sub or rack mountable via supplied rack ears(2RU). The amp also includes single point parametric EQ along with auto on or 12v triggered on.
Any one ordering a kit is also eligible to purchase the 5.1 Audio Tool Kit for $50.00 and anyone ordering Duals or more is eligible to purchase any LCR(non sub) Seaton Sound Product at Family pricing in the future.

While developing the new custom driver we ran into a slight issue that the Driver surround is larger than the previous driver. When I put the face plate on I found that the surround on the driver is larger than the faceplate hole. Mark and I decided instead of trying to get the driver manufacturer to develop a new surround(lots of time) we decided that the added capability of the surround and bullet proof function was worth a little bit of hassle. I will supplying new bolts (standard or metric depending on what you have) and ½” nylon spacers. This will push the faceplate out about 5/16” more than current as there is a 3/16” spacer now. You also need to make sure you have the driver centered pretty good. If this is a problem for anyone you can take a rotary tool and sand the inside of the face plate then stain it black or for shipping costs I can router it out and refinish it. The stock grill still works perfect and so do the aftermarket metal grills.
The TURBO Kit is an upgrade for the MFW-15 and will consists of the following:
A new 1000Watt Amp modified, Custom 15” driver, 2 block off plates to replace the top adjustment plate and plate amp while providing connection for the outboard amp. The lower plate also has speaker connectors with wire for the driver already connected. 4 nylon spacers with longer bolts( please specify SAE or Metric Threads) Gasket Material for the driver and plates along with new screws
Warranty is 1yr driver and amp.
Also if you have changed your email address you might want to send me an email as I have at least 1 that is bad. I will post those that I get a bounce to in the old thread.
PLEASE READ BELOW
I need to post this here
I am down to the last few block off plates. Once these are gone running another batch is probably not going to happen. Due to costs of having to cut a 4X8 sheet and then having it anodized and the slowing down of orders it just doesn't make any business sense to do at this time. That and I cant believe there are that many MFW-15's left out there that either haven't already had a Turbo put into them or have been turned into kindling
The friend that had been CNCing the amp face plates is now working 2 jobs plus the CNC in his garage. He has no time these days to set up and run 2 face plates at a time, it just doesn't work anymore and going someplace else to have it done would be huge money. After the last few of these are sold that I have block off plates for I will no longer be machining the faceplates. Either you can wire to the speaker terminals on the amp plate or drill holes through the cabinet for the binding posts that I will still supply. Or something else that I haven't thought of.
I took a huge hit when we moved to the current driver and I only raised prices by $50. After these next few are sold I have to raise the price. Costs have been slowly changing on the amps also. I did what I could to keep costs down for the community that got screwed over when AV123 closed up leaving a ton of bad product out there with faulty amps. I will have to raise the price.....
So to sum things up
After the next few kits are sold the following will be changing
Price goes to $899+ shipping
Amp face plates no longer machined
Block off plates no longer supplied
I will still be selling the kits and supporting the ones I have sold.
There is no shortage of drivers or amps.
