    My 7 year old JL Audio 10w0-4 finally died. As you can see from the pics, the surround is shredded.

    So, I need a new sub. I've got my MTX amp bridged to send about 160 watts to the sub.

    Can I get a better sub than an Image Dynamics IDQ10 for less than the IDQ's price of $160?

    Is it worth fixing a speaker that cost me $100 seven years ago?

    You can't, it would be a ghetto rigged crappy fix. Especially when it's all the way around... like a dry-rot...

    So, what is your budget for the replacement? I take it you are looking for another 4ohm subwoofer, what power do you have on hand?

    I'd say $160 is the most I want to spend.

    Price ftl


    I'm borrowing a 12 year old Rockford Fosgate Series 1 to get me by until I buy a new sub.

    It's better than nothing.
