I am new here, and grateful for any advice...
I got an OK deal on a PSW450 with a bad amp.
I have been reading about it and it is not that well thought of in the gen pop.
Any idea what the valid beefs are with this subwoofer and amp?
Is the cabinet just wrong for the driver?
Why do I see people favoring sealed cabinets?
If the amp is a weak point I have the opportunity to fix that. I was thinking of dropping in a gainclone if there is something basically wrong with the OEM amp.
If it matters, this will be used in my garage. Not an audiophile setup, I just want the air to move on certain music, and to hear something over power tools and other noise of work. Right now I have a Crown D75 and 2 Polk 5's. There are also a couple tinny, but interesting Sansui SP-3500 - the sub woofer might be what they are missing. It is clearly a not too well thought out experiment.
