    The Old Mofo 15's

    I am looking for an Old mofo 15, the ones that weight like 40+ pounds and have a thicker suspension, they have to be around somewhere, but i cant find them. the ones on ebay are all the new style. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Re: The Old Mofo 15's

    I found one on craigslist for 150, i want to pick it up, but its about 110 miles away. And i am also scared about being able to find a re-cone. If re-cones are fairly cheap, then i may run down there. It does not need a re-cone, but its better to be safe than sorry. Any advice ?

    Re: The Old Mofo 15's

    i have reconed and the motors arent very good at all. you have to run a short ww coil due to the depth clearence. the backplate is NOT undercut so the coil dosent have alot of rearward travel.

    they are a 3" coiled bigger motor vrs the newer 2.5" motor. if ur looking for something big and cheaper get a aq motor it will be alot louder.

    i have been offered free mofo motors and they arent worth paying for the shipping...

    HUH?... ummm.. a power acoustic MOFO weighs no where near 70lbs... and def. not a 4" coil.....

    are you sure you didn't buy bath salts instead?... would explain a lot...

    This is a 70+lb monster, a MOFO is not.

    Re: The Old Mofo 15's

    well, the forum wont let me post a link until a moderator approves it, but here are the sub specs:


    2600 watts power handling
    340 oz. magnet
    4" BASV / Kapton Hybrid 18 AWG Voice Coil
    SPL 92 dB
    Tuning: 40 Hz
    Port size: 4" x 10"
    Number of ports: 2
    Non-pressed paper cone with aluminum rib insert (patent pending)
    Dual 1ohm voice coil( Mine is a dual 2 ohm)
    Die cast aluminum
    Black wrinkle finish with Diamond cut
    Wrinkle finish front & back plate
    Large foam rubber surround
    1-piece EVA gasket
    Dual Conex spider
    Woven tinsel lead through spider
    Chrome screw terminals
    Weight: 67 lbs

    I can attest to the weight as i had to put it into the trunk. By the way, this is not the new winky dinky pos MOFO's that are on ebay. its more than four times what those are. The last time they made them is like in 2006? dont quote me but i think that is when they were last made.
