The original MFW-15 produced and sold by the now defunct AV123 was designed by our own Mark Seaton. Unfortunately through the production life, parts quality in the amplifiers were reduced by suppliers to a point where a large majority of customers experienced amplifier failures. With the company out of business, Mark worked with our suppliers to have metalwork run to allow customers to bring life back to the very capable cabinets. Even when the first MFW-15 subwoofer was shipped, there was always intent to get around to a “V2” as more capable woofers and amplifiers were still just becoming more readily available from reliable sources. The Turbo Kit replaces the original 350W amplifier with a US built, DSP optimized, 700W ICEpower based amplifier, and a matching new woofer to finally enable all of the performance available from the sleek and capable enclosure.
Jim Wilson gave his rather detailed impressions and experience with an updated MFW-15 Turbo here at Home Theater Shack.
