Everyone already knew shipping was slow before ordering. It's an amazing sub for the money, just be happy with that.

seriously, this thread is like a repeat show, the exact same bitching was going on earlier in the thread. everyone needs to relax, you will get your sub!!

remember that the distributor is basically two dudes in Vegas operating an internet-direct storefront, and this is a product where demand is overwhelming relative to supply. I'm sure they are working as fast as they can, you aren't ordering from Best Buy.

has anyone had experience with a dual set up using the PA-120 ?
is it worth spending the money?

I have a dual setup about 6ft apart and 3 ft from side walls...love it, really fills out and evens the room, even though one did great had to get another...this thing is a fantastic HT sub!

Also check out "ohiolefty" as he posted pics of his dual setup.

To all other posters, I bought from the same guys and it may take some time to get yours but these guys are legit as their ebay ranking demonstrates. As a previous poster stated, they are blowing thru these and have a hard time keeping them in stock.

A bad day fishing beats a good day at work!

I agree, to a point. If that is the problem, and not knowing if it really is, they should say so. I am in no big hurry because I have 2 subs already but I don't think telling people that it will ship definitley by today, and then not shipping them, is good practice and it just get's under peoples skin. Just my 2 cents.....

I think with the help of this board they had an overwhelming response to this sub. Like batpig said these are two guys trying to ship one hell of a load. Also I'm not sure how UPS handles the pickup on these. I'm sure they can only ship so many on a truck unless they send a semi.

they definitely do play some "games" with the shipping date by selling this stuff even when it's not actually in stock.... they seem to throw up the "billing info received" to get buyers to think the sub is about to ship even though they are actually still waiting on stock, so in that sense I agree with you that they aren't being 100% honest.

however, they seem to be stand-up guys, the will personally answer the phone if you call them, and everyone gets their equipment. they have perfect feedback and do tons of business with Klipsch, Energy, BIC, PA, etc. I ordered my BIC VK-12 from them with no issues, and everyone in this thread who ordered the PA-120 eventually got it, and they even took care of customers who had some issues (i.e. bad amp). I haven't seen a single complaint (besides the shipping delay stuff) from anyone about them in this thread or the BIC owner's thread.

So in other words.... yes, they are being a little shifty with the shipping dates, but people shouldn't start flipping out; you WILL get your subwoofer and the seller is 100% legit. Just be patient....

I don't think anyone has the right to tell someone how to feel when it's not your money spent. I too want what I pay for in a timely manner and if you say up front that it mite take 2 weeks just to ship and I bite then that's on me, but, if you say shipping the week of the 23rd and it's now the 30th I have a problem with that. Money was spent so you can't fault a person for wanting what they paid for.

Didn't you read the thread when everyone was having the same problems as now? It would be foolish to not think that late shipping would be a possibility.

Good news. In the UPS tracker, mine shows up as in transit now, shipped out of Las Vegas. Hopefully it will be here by the weekend for most of us.

The week of the 23rd. to me goes from mon. the 23rd. to sunday the 29th. so they are only a day off. No, I probably haven't been waiting as long as some and I might feel differently if I don't have my sub in a couple weeks. But everyone who has one of these subs seems very satisified and that is good enough for me.

I really don't understand all of the whining. When I decided to get one of these I got into my car, drove to their warehouse, gave Eric my CC info, put the sub into my car and drove home. Entire process took less than 30 minutes. I guess living in Vegas has more advantages than are advertised.

I see there are two dealers located in Vegas selling the PA-120, sound distributors and acoustic sound design. Does it matter which one to order from, or are they both good?

Yes, depending on stock, it can takes a while for the sub to show up. But as many before me have mentioned, they are very nice guys doing the best they can keeping up with orders. I called twice, and both times provided very good, albeit casual toned service. He even left me a positive feedback on ebay! What more do you want?

Oh, and the sub is very high value.
