jimy_speedt you can check out out our website at https://PinWoofer.com and we also have a PinSide store.

If you take that DIY route keep in mind that you'll get full-range audio to the cabinet speaker. Our solution gives you extended bass because our amplifier has a built in low-pass filter that will maximize power transfer from the sound board to your cabinet speaker. Our kits are fully tested, completely compatible with any pin, and worth the extra money because they take all of the guesswork out of the project.

There is also a thread called "New Amplified Subwoofer Kits by PinWoofer" where you can read about some of the success stories.

We can ship internationally - happy to give you a quote!

Quoted from jimy_speedt:

thanks for all the answers !
It is great to receive deep advices. I will keep my speaker, but yes I am open to the good solution. Let me have a look into it.
The pin bot is really special, you have much bass sound and I would like it to boom !!
thanks again for the detailed comments

I would recommend posting a photograph of your cabinet speaker here, so I can be certain of your installation requirements.

jimy_speedt you will get a nice bass boost on that title with the amp only option and using that speaker, and I am confident that the results will exceed your expectations. I've done many of these with 6" speakers and the boost is surprising.

However, let me highlight that for $18 USD more you can get one of our 6" dual voice coil speakers included as a kit with the amplifier, which means you have effectively two speakers in one and are able to utilize both of the amplifier channels. It makes a difference.

Either way I'm here for you and let me know if I can be of further assistance.

Quoted from wawa777:

A sensitivity of 90dB is above average and rather good. Above 90dB is excellent.
I doubt that the original cabinet speaker was playing louder.
Of course you’ll get it louder with pinwoofer or a DIY amp solution. But I wouldn’t expect too much true “Boom” with the current setup in this machine (of course that is also a matter of perspective).
It will result in a quite dominant mid-high bass dominating the mix without any depth or sub bass. Some people like that, but it’ll sound quite unnatural.
A true and integrated “Boom” would require a bit more work like balancing the subbass (EQ), matching the signal to the back box and playing position (SPL mic or better REW and a calibrated mic), a bigger woofer or even array of woofers.

Note that the LPF -3dB cutoff is ~178Hz so the amp is delivered and reproduces mostly low bass. Sure, a larger cone will reproduce the lower tones more efficently but the 6" will be quite effective in creating a nice rich bass tapestry and will greatly improve the sound. Let's see where jimy_speedt goes with this and get his feedback.

Thanks for your comments - much appreciated.
