    power acoustik mofo 15 sub

    Has anyone seen one of these mofo's in action.Are the any good.The price and power handeling are very tempting but as I have found out the hard way,you get what you pay for.I will be using a mtx 81000d amp to power the sub.Any imput will be helpful.

    I heard one before. It wasn't that great. The can take alot of power but they do sound like crap.

    They are the same quality that power acoustik usually makes. It is an SPL sub, and if you are looking for a cheap way to get into SPL(or if you just going to show off to all your little friends who dont know the definition of sound quality) then it is a good sub. I wouldnt be caught dead with one when the SQ judge gets into my car.

    I used to own 2 12" power acoustiks by the way.

    Visonik V800XD (1000-watts RMS)
    2x Power Acoustik MOFO 15s...
    * After a few months rattling sound from the cones, bad glue joints on the ribs
    2x NEW Power Acoustik MOFO 15s...
    * Spider totally detached from the landing on one of the subs

    Glue quality ***** on them... if your glue doesn't break they are pretty loud subs. My friend that owned them gave up on them after that and switched to some low-end MA Audio subs and hasn't had any *glue* related problems... but he has toasted coils on two pairs so far.

    Yeah, and he also runs with every knob on any amplifier he owns (besides the x-over) all the way up - bass boost, gain, etc. I'm surprised by any amp that lasts longer than a week with him.

    Right on Nick... I'm amazed the V800XD lasted like it did, something like a year it lasted with him before he killed it.

    FYI: Only amp this guy hasn't managed to kill that he's had for any amount of time is an old Soundstream Rubicon 702.
