Have you looked at the ASW 1000 on Facebook? Would that not be of interest
Time to get back to when I enjoyed listening......no more upgrading, more of a headache than a pleasure

Old ASW1000 is a 120 watt sub - launched in 1997 / 1998.

ASW 850 is a 1000 watt sub.

Thanks for the specs which rules it out but also the seller is the same guy that sold me a dud asw750 last week so I wouldn’t buy from him

Had mine repaired at HFX last week -  not to expensive.

It had issues that he did not disclose when he sold me the sub and when I found out that it had issues he played ignorant of the issues.

What was wrong with yours and how much did you pay?
