true subwoofer EQ version?

Post by mbskeam » Wed Jul 06, 2011 5:31 pm

picked up this plate amp off of fleebay.
knew it was a bit busted up from a loose magnet.....

so far what I see is this.....

does anybody know what this connection plug is for?
if anybody could pop open there's to look, I would be grateful, I don't think anything is plugged into it. next to it under the small board there is also a small 2pin white plug (CN1) is anything plugged into this also?

there most likely is more wrong, but you never know.... [-o< [-o<
I have the small transformer that I got last year with a subwoofer and the passive woofer

There's a big coil, transformer, thing a ma bob that's screwed to the back of the driver that plugs in there, should of come with the plate.

Yes I have that coil transformer, but all its plugs go to the bottom by the black caps, I can account for all 3 plugs and ground, these are color coded and the connectors are tabbed out. even I can't screw this up..... :lol: :lol: :lol:
do you have this sub?

I've had several EQ subs, 10s & 12s but I sold them all. The EQ really does a nice job of smoothing out the response but you lose total output as a trade off. I was advised to steer away from the EQ versions just because they're hard to work on, kind of like the Super Junior plates.
