    If you plug the port, what would you expect as a result? And why do you call this a passive sub? It is rattling my house now, even with a moderate WM speaker............ thanks

    Advice on replacing/upgrading subwoofer speaker in existing housing??

    Robert, Many thanks for the info. There is a switched outlet on the back of my main receiver, and I have the spare receiver plugged into that, so both receivers turn on with one button press. I ended up buying a $70 12" automotive subwoofer at WalMart and installed that into my...

    Advice on replacing/upgrading subwoofer speaker in existing housing??

    Greetings, The subwoofer in my existing setup breaks down (probably not the exact proper word) during hard bass hits (like cannon and explosion sequences). I want to upgrade the subwoofer speaker itself to better handle these events. The subwoofer is an aging Optimus Pro SW-12 and it appears...
