No offense taken at all. These would be valid concerns where I to be on the other side of things and shopping around myself.
We will have 3rd party data in the form of CEA 2010 testing as soon as Josh Ricci from Data-Bass.com can get a Sunday without rain to test. We sent him a sub over two months ago, but the poor dude has just been swamped. He now has two units from us and we will have 3rd party data on our prime 2 subwoofer products.
In addition, we hope to have these two units "in stock and ready to ship" by the fall.
Most of what we have done so far has been "built to order" this summer because demand has far exceeded expectation....which is a good and bad thing.
There is definitely an advantage if you want to get a sub fast, ordering from a larger company.
But we do have many customers who felt it was worth the wait, especially to have hand built, made in USA drivers with over 2.5 inches of P-P xmech.
FWIW I know there are a at least a handful of ID companies who are doing mostly built to order stuff and I have seen wait times for those have ranged from a few weeks to as long as six months (in rare cases). And they are still highly recommended and have a solid online following.
