Question about KLH ASW10-120 Subwoofer
I would like to junk the amp and install a passive crossover since the speaker works fine. I need to know if it is a dual voice coil speaker and what the impedance is. Any help is appreciated.
It is a 4 ohm nominal impedance woofer. If you put a new woofer in, it will last maybe half an hour and then fry/melt. The problem is the amp, not the woofer. Throw the amp out and use the box as a passive sub. Get a 100 hz sub crossover.

It is a single voice coil, 4 ohm speaker, rated to 150 watts.
Depending on the amp you're using, I don't know that I'd push more than 100 watts through it.

This subwoofer does the duty of it's intended purpose... However its nice to have a home stereo subwoofer amplifier, considering the lack of general availability. Like many of other audiophiles- once you hit the bass you need more... As i found this product to be sufficient in its purpose- i still wanted to frankenstein a meaner system using the built in crossover/ volume controls on a stand-alone subwoofer amplifer for home audio. Fortunately in my case i have about 10 extra subwoofers (competition grade car audio) lying about in several sizes, not to mention my hockey stick went through the cone so- replacement was inevitable. The sub does have a single 4 ohm voice coil so you need to match that resistance value or at least be higher (or you end up over-working the amp- making it unstable and turn potential sound to heat). So replace the speaker with any 10" single 4 Ohm, dual 2 ohm voice coil subwoofer.(wired in seires [+ to -]) , or in my case- use the amp and use it as a master amp, then run it to a reciever of some sort to gain some watts. The other way to use the amp itself solely for driving subs with amplification is find yourself any low watt subwoofer combination with a posibility of a total 4 ohm configuration in total, and mount them in an enclosure of your own choice... Maybe a nice TV stand with integrated subs or a coffee table.
ANd for the knuckle heads who say the sound is only hitting certain areas.... HOUSE SUBS ARE MEANT TO BE AIMED AT THE WALL TO PRODUCE A BOUNCE EFFECT TO ESSENTIALLY REVERBERATE OFF OF THE ROOM STRUCTURE CREATING A SPEAKER OUT OF THE WALL. BASS NOISE IS THE MOVEMENT OF AIR AND MAKING THE WALLS VIBERATE CREATES MICRO-FLUCTUATIONS THAT IN- TURN MOVE AIR ACROSS THE ROOM ( the reason subs are in enclosures in the first place....)
