Seismic Audio Enforcer II subwoofer

OK, I bought one used for $160 and used it for the bottom end on my Carvin TRC210A system outdoors, it worked pretty good so I ordered a new one ...

The new one shipped from Memphis on Monday I received it (in Washington state) Friday at 1pm ... I got it to my storage space and tested it and it didn't work (BUMMER #1) ... my guess was that a wire had come loose ... which was what happened, BUT the real bummer was that the press on connectors were stretched out and were so soft (poor quality metal) that I couldn't even crimp them so they could be reused (BUMMER #2) ... also the wire used inside is really small for a subwoofer!

I knew that there was a crossover built in to the Enforcer II by listening to it running full range, since I use an active crossover or speaker processor I wanted to disable the crossover so something that I wanted to put off for later needs to get done now ...

The other disheartening thing is the new cabinet is different from the old cabinet (BUMMER #3) ... the new cabinet is built better and doesn't have the back brace partially blocking the port ...

And BTW, it appears that the 18 has maybe 3mm x-max they don't do much below 50Hz ... but they do what I need, relieve some of the stress off of my powered Carvin 2x10" low frequency speaker ...
