M&K subwoofer blew it's 125W amplifier, found replacement but...


Active Member
Hello everyone,

I have an M&K LCR 750-THX 5.1 speaker system and my M&K V-1250THX subwoofer blew it's 125W amplifier, being an older model I wasn't able to get a direct replacement as they are no longer available! I have never cared for any THX modes for my subwoofer as I have kept it set to Variable for Bass Level and the Low Pass Filter at 80Hz 24db/OCTAVE. I have however found a replacement M&K VX-1250 250W amp (newer model) except it's the non-THX version. Now for my question, how well will the integration of this new non-THX version subwoofer change how it blends in with the rest of my speaker system? Here is a picture of my older dead amp and the second the new amp. The newer brand new amp is only $139.95, better than spending $1200 for a new SB-1250!

I would appreciate any insight and thank you,
Techlord. :)
