We do plan to make those as regular finished products. We will have two flavors: F8 and M8. They share basically same driver/enclosure/amp. However, in F8, there are 3 extension setting whereas in M8, one of the extension setting is designated as 50hz/24 so that it can be used as a midbass module.
Some customers have asked where we are for the FV15 replacement? To make long story short, we decide to offer the follow new models by Thanksgiving:
1) FVX15 (DS1502 aluminum driver + HX405 amp). This has the same enclosure size as FV15HP. But the new amp without PEQ control can make it more affordable. The price should be around $999, plus $140 shipping. In terms of compromise over FV15HP other than driver and PEQ, the extension setting will have 1port music, 1port HT, and 2port. There will be no independent damping and extension filter control.
2) FVX12(DS1204 aluminum driver + HX405 amp). This model has a smaller enclosure (20"H x 17" W, 22" D without grille, grille and amp control add 2"). The price is to be determined, but my goal is around $900 including shipping. It has dual tune feature similar to FVX15.
Both this models should fill up the big pricing jump we have from LV12R to FV15HP. If the pricing pressure is too much, we may even consider LVX12 (which use less expensive paper cone driver) and by doing that we can drop price by another $100.
For sealed subs, we also have L12 in the work (300WRMS amp driving 14" cube) and other models... Stay tuned.
