    Re: atlas coils fried need some help.

    to tell the truth I was having problems with my baffle area on my box that I normally use so I used a friends box that he built (like **** I guess) and I didnt take the time to inspect it . turns out on the side wall there was only one screw in the very top corner and one screw in the very bottom corner . . and when I turned it up and went to adjust the gains and what not the friggin thing seperated and the sub went nuts and . . . .pow burnt coils! fu*k me . . .and my own stupidity for not over looking the box . . .Learned a valuable lesson . check sh*t out for yourself and trust NO ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: atlas coils fried need some help.

    At least its just a $40 mistake. Could have been much worse........
    Still *****, though. Get it reconed, and in a proper box, and just chalk it up as a life lesson.

    On a side note, if Ascendant began reconing other companies woofers, they would be nonstop busy at that price.

    no, he fried his VC.

    someone just mentioned that it is 40$ to recone at AA...which is fairly cheap, so a repair job on a VC might not be too expensive.

    Re: atlas coils fried need some help.

    your lucky that you even got an atlas. that sub was only $120ish shipped.

    IMO - that sub is in the $200~250 catagory. so $180 is even a **** good deal on that speaker.

    be glad you got your hands on one.

    yeah plus about $13.00 for shipping each way so really it's about $66.00 at the end of the day. I paid $100.00 + 13.25 for shipping. brand new .
    which brings me to a question maybe I just hold on to the atlas for now and find out what the new atlas's cost , (anybody know in general what the prices are you dont have to be exact I know alot of people say call and ask thats why I'm saying just in general because I'm pretty sure they are out of the xbl^2 atlas's. )
    also would the new atlas's sound right with my existing xbl^2 atlas( i have 2. 1 is burnt and 1 is still good ). ( I have it in a solid 1ft^3 box right now with about 280wrms ) sounds good but not as good as ported! I believe it is mkII they are using on the new subs> ??? anybody have the new ascendant web site ( It said something like the new havoc series subs and talked about mkII. . ... I didnt book mark it and I cant find it on their web site . . .
