At NSPL finals, i was having a lot of problems with it. For example, one sub starting unloading so i replaced it, then another one somewhere else in the box would unload. I looked and did everything i could think of to fix it, but nothing helped so i took it out. Yea its a lot of work, but i love messing with it during my free time.
