Re: MS 309i subwoofer

Whoever told you it was a tweeter is definitely not someone I would not take audio advise from...

A powered subwoofer is a holistic design, with every part - driver, amplifier, cabinet alignment, enclosure dimensions, even the amount of internal stuffing - being accounted for in the final product. If you substitute one piece for something with different parameters it sets off a chain reaction, and unless done carefully the new component is likely to upset the balance and result in a less than satisfying result. In the case of an amplifier there are things like DSP (Digital Signal Processing) to consider. That's the 'programming' done by the manufacturing to shape the signal and tailor the output to their specifications. It also includes protection mechanisms to ensure the driver is not pushed beyond its limits. With a generic, off the shelf amp, none of that exists. At best you'll get a different sound from the subwoofer, at worst you destroy the driver because it is no longer being protected. Without the ability to effectively use modeling software swapping an amp like that is generally not advised.

Welcome to HTS.

I'm a bit confused by your post. The 309i is a subwoofer, but you say the "tweeter" is still good. It doesn't have a tweeter though, just a 10" sub driver. What tweeter are you referring to?
Hey Jman
There is another plug on the bottom under the main driver.
Red and black also.
I was told its a tweeter for some reason.
But i dont know 100% what it is.
When i took the amp off there are 2 plugs.
Main to driver and smaller one on the bottom of the box.

MS 309i subwoofer

Hi All.
Im very new to this forum.
Hope in the right rection.

Pkease help if anyone is able.

I have a Mordant Short Sub 309i
About 300w
And the amp in it is completely fried and not repairable.
However the speaker itself and tweeter are still very good.
How can i salvage the sub and find alternative Amp for it at a decent price to make it worth while.

Your comments are much appreciated.
