Greetings, this place keeps bringing me back (or maybe it's just my love of audio) !![Optional Reading]!! Yesterday I noticed the amp on my SW-15 was pretty hot, so I opened her up to see if I could help cool anything internally. I just read that 10ga wire between the amp and speaker is a good fix, but it's too late for that. When I tried to power up the amp again, something let out some smoke and afterwards the amp would not power up. I found the fuse blown, but replacement only resulted in more blown fuses. So I suspect (from visual inspection) 2 mosfets in the amp overheated and as a result the amp now shorts out. [Start Reading Here] I might be able to get the amp fixed, but am considering just buying a new amp and new driver while i'm at it. I've read great things about the Tempest and Dayton DVC drivers, but I want to make sure the Tempest would work with the ported SW-15 cabinet. Wayne Ernst posted here that the Dayton DVC works great with his SW-15 http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...91#post1739891 I plan on making my own box (or tube), so the amp/sub will be good to have but I won't have time for this project till next summer. My cabinet already has dampening sheets (parts express #268-010) as well as acoustic foam (part#260-316B) inside the walls of the cabinet (attached with 3M adhesive part# 340-270) to tighten up response (+ Dayton Spikes, Part# 240-715 and speaker sealing caulk, part 269-300). Finally, the amp I was looking at is Parts Express Part Number 300-794, http://www.partsexpress.com Thanks in advance for any opinions.
