    Powerful DBX Subwoofer with Amplifier/Controller - $100 (Sterling)

    This is a large, powerful subwoofer: 40" wide x 22" deep x 29.25" high. The amplifier/controller is labeled: DBX Split Spectrum - MPA 150. Comes with approximately 20 feet of Apature Accuflo heavy gauge speaker wire. That's a cell phone standing on top (not included) as a size reference. Cash only please.

    I have a spare 2245 woofer that only needs foam if it works out

    Thanks

    Very Cool!! Yours has the amp and special ultraBASS cable, plus, buying from Sterling saves you a long drive north for the other one!

    It looks like this unit that Dave on ebay has for sale up in Binghampton, NY ... http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...m=230252184036

    It sounds like a potential good deal to me.

    Made it home , no issues w/travel. My friend and main lifter said lets go strait upstairs with it so no direct comparing the 2. I need to make room for it. It will replace a lower end Velodyne in the 2.1 set up using the Sansui receiver and Dahlquist DQ-10.

    Anyone know where...

    ...I can find specs on this particular dbx unit?

    Yes, I know it's not a JBL piece, but I figgered for beer money the sub and MPA-150 amp were worth taking a flyer on.....
