he was just being honest. Remember.. this thing has been delayed since December of last year. Also, he didnt mean it is really "shaking itself apart"... he was saying that they ran into some structural problems with the first off the production line in January (ish) of this year that were not acceptable. Enough of a problem with the structure ( i have no idea what that is) ... that they stopped shipping them. I have had one on order since November of last year. I remember talking to Paradigm via facebook (see below) when the first big delay was announced early this year and they told me then that a first production run had shipped and there was a delay in manufacturing the second batch and that I was first in line for the second batch in March. Well, now three months later I am being told that the Sub2 might be ready in July. Meanwhile they have been promoting the Sub 2 all over the place all year long while the ship dates have been pushed from one month to the next. A bit irksome.
Paradigms response back in February (from a post to me on facebook):
"We're sorry for the confusion. It turns out demand of the SUB 2 has exceeded our original sales forecasts of this extremely complex and powerful subwoofer! The first production run has been shipped & sold, and the second round of units will be available soon"
And then again in March (facebook post):
"We are significantly oversold, well beyond our initial forecasts, and the inventory and production planning requirements for a product of this sophistication (each SUB 2 has two 3000 watt amplifiers and six 10" woofers, all built completely in house in North America) resulted in a 90 day gap in production. We expect to be building SUB 2's again in late March. Thanks again for your patience and for being a Paradigm fan! - we'll be building a SUB 2 just for you very soon, and we assure you it will be worth the wait!
