Default Velodyne Servo plate amp

i have the plate amp out of my old velodyne sub F1500-B
circa 1991, sub still worked but surrounds and cone were pretty beat up.

anyway,i have this plate amp,can it be used in a DIY sub?
i see there are a few extra wires (im assuming for the servo control) the main wires are 2 blacks and 1 red. and there are
a couple groups of smaller wires in a ribbon.

anybody know anything about these, can it be used?

Default velodyne plate amp

Hey if you decide not to do anything with it (the amp) please let me know. I have an f1000 that needs an amp, mine is dead.
thanks for your consideration.

sell it and get a modern plate amp for your sub. First off, the Velodyne does not put out much power. We have come a long way and high powered cheap sub amps are an example. You can't use the servo part of the velo without a driver that has a sensor that relays to the amp.

Default trades and such for the amp

Thanks for the reply.
The amp dimensions should be the same i believe i will however check my sub. Hmmmm what to trade??? Vinyl? CD's (no, not certificate of deposits). All of my equipment is old (like me). What do you like? I have collected blues, jazz, rock, classical [vinyl and cd], what's your pleasure? Cartridge, well an old grado is all i have. Tapes... 8 track (no seriously just kidding) cassette? How about an old H.H. Scott FM tuner. Cash? Offer me some direction, what floats your boat? I'd like to get this sub running again.
Again thanks,
dave kaye
i'm in mass btw
