    Considering all the problems people had with this sub, I got 2 1/2 years out of mine before today. Not bad for about $120. Basically, my sub started thumping hard at regular intervals (about 20 seconds) and the smell of smoke permiated the room.

    The question is, what do I do now. Now, I would like to replace it with an SVS, but right now, money is tight.

    Has anyone tried replacing the amp in this sub? Maybe that might be the cheaper, cost effective way of doing things...

    Sorry about your sub Jason. To bad you don't have a spare to tide you over? I can think of options but think it best to let the more knowledgeable members answer this one. Hope you get it worked out quick.[​IMG]

    I forgot to say it only took five min to replace the amp in mine. Eight screws and one wire to unclip. Mine was under warranty though. If you do decide to go this rout your sub could be much more complicated or it might be even easyer than what I experienced?

    You might be able to fix your sub by replacing a capacitor on the amp. Mine started doing the same thing as yours, but I fixed it with a $2 part. It's been a while since I did it, so let me take a look.
