I don't know about that though, I bought some eD cinema speakers before the company went belly up and I have no fear at all that anything will go wrong with them, in fact I recently bought another pair used so I could go to 7.1. Speakers like this have such a high sensitivity that you don't have to push them very hard so I bet they will last a very long time with no problems. Amps are another story of course...

Plus the main components are readily available at parts-express, if you happen to blow a woofer or compression driver.

Edit: speaking of CHT speakers - may not be the case with eD.

Would you have bought the eD's for retail if you knew they were going under? I'd venture to say most would not. I hope your speakers don't have any problems or if they do, that you have driver and crossover specs just in case.

I'm not sure, as I don't have significant insights into how the business works.

However, if I were to take an offhand guess, it would seem as though warranty support on Craig's part could mostly be a matter of acting as an intermediary between his suppliers and his customers. I assume that he gets some sort of warranty/guarantee from Eminence for example for the drivers he purchased from them.

Of course none of us have the real story as to what happened here but i think that Chu Gai's lengthy summation above is probably pretty close to spot on.

I'm sure CC will do what he can to help out any customer with warranty issues.

My brother and I were texting earlier about this. We both love how he is ranting about "American made," and then he states, "As I type this, I don't even know if our wonderful government will let me import the 50 amps I already paid for." If he is so hardcore about this issue, why not source American made amps? It's more like China amps ASSEMBLED in the USA.

He might be highly knowledgeable, is helpful with customers, and had a great product at a great value, but what a shifty hypocrite!!! I am so glad that I was hesitant to purchase anything. Buh Bye Mark Shifter, uhh-um, I mean Craigsub.

Just curious, what affordable amps are made entirely in the US? Is that even an option anymore?

Well, there are certainly affordable Chinese amps made with substandard components lacking protection capabilities. Just look at ED as a recent example.

No doubt. But my guess is that affordable amps that are completely made in the US probably don't exist anymore.

Expensive amps that are made entirely (not assembled) in the US probably don't exist anymore.

Here's the best way to handle this situaton. Let's keep this thread for a technical discussion of the Chase products etc. If you want to discuss the closure of Chase, please use this thread dedicated to the topic:

http://www.avsforum.com/t/1437980/chase-home-theater-closing

This will keep this thread focused on HT products etc vs his business.

Thanks for your help and understanding.

The thread discussing the closing of Chase has been closed. That does not change the fact that this thread is to discuss Chase products ONLY. When the business officially closes, we can add warranty discussions etc. But discussing the closing of Chase should not be part of this thread.

Just bought two of the SS18.2 subs. Can't wait to get them and try them out. Craig has been great to work with.

Love the idea of having 4 18" drivers.

It's pathetic that a guy airs his famliy issues in public. Not professional at all. It makes it tough to recommend cht because you never know what's going happen. or where the blame really belongs.

It's like a train wreck, you just can't look away.

A pending charge showed up a couple days ago when my order status changed from pending to confirmed, but no, it hadn't been charged a month ago when I ordered on 11/29. I just would like some sort of indication of when to expect delivery since they use R&L Carriers, I'll have to arrange a time to accept delivery.

In contrast, I also ordered an Outlaw LFM-1EX on 11/29. It was delivered on 12/3. I had set myself an upgrade budget of $1500, and with the 3 Pro10s and the Outlaw, I'll be at $1605 delivered.

Well try that yahoo email address then since everyone seems to have no problems with it. BTW, SeaNile are those SS subs the baltic birch or MDF ones?

You know, that's a good question. I exchanged several emails with Craig and then just ordered from his CHT site. Not sure if they are the birch or MDF. I just hope they show up by next Saturday so I can give them a good workout and decide if 2 more are necessary.
