I'm willing to try that first before running off and getting an SVS or Hsu.
First, you should confirm the price with Sunfire. Sunfire is charging a flat $450 fee, however, I never heard that the True Sub MK II cost more to repair. It sounds a little strange.
Second. The Sunfires had very high excursion drivers with very large surrounds. I would think that finding a driver with the excursion needed in a small diameter would be difficult.
I see that you would go for a 10 inch driver and forget about finding an 8 inch driver with a huge surround.
Other members can give better advice about dropping a 10 inch driver in.
