I have had a Pinnacle 250 Watt sub woofer for about 6 and a half years and it just died. I replaced the fuse but no go. It is getting power but no sound is coming out (I used test tones from my pre-amp).

I got a suggested repair of $130 for a new amp (if that is the problem). Is this worth it or should I use the money toward a new sub-woofer (like the SVS 39PC plus that goes for around $825 plus shipping). In other words is the SVS worth the additional $700 over my repaird Pinnacle?

A good way to rule out the speaker is to run another speaker to the amp. This wold involve removing the old speaker to get to the speaker leads, but it's a cheap way to find out if it's the amp or the speaker.

Simply put a 1.5V battery across the speaker leads, if it makes a sound and the cone moves in or out, the speaker is good. Or use a VOM. I am not a fan of plate amps mounted in a vibrating box.
