General What is your overall opinion of this product? Once I got one that worked, I love it. I went through 3 of the "B-stock" units here, each lasting between 2 minutes and about 2 weeks before I got AMS to agree to send me a brand new one which came direct from Mackie. I'd like to buy a second one although I know that these are very much hit or miss based on other reviews and friends experiences. If you get a good one, they're incredible.
Worst subwoofers of all time.

What is your overall opinion of this product? I have a large mobile DJ service, performing 77 weddings in the month of August 2014. I have 6 of these subwoofers and every single unit experienced a module failure within weeks or months. There is something terribly wrong with this line of subwoofers and Mackie will not stand behind them. If you have a warranty they will fix once, but after that you're SOL. I have made the mistake of repeatedly spending money to fix them. My configuration is fine, and the evidence is backed up by other subwoofers in my inventory not having anywhere near the level of failure. In my 20+ years of running a mobile DJ services I have never experienced anything like it. Stay as far away as you can from these subwoofers and Mackie from now on.
