My name is Ben. I come from the land of Elemental Designs. Or at least a room in the building at the moment
Sorry for the delay here. Things have been a wee bit busy at the shop and I just got back into town today. We've been following this thread but a lot of the questions have come through e-mail and have been answered through there.
As far as the web site goes as of Thursday most of it should be functioning properly. If you find anything that looks out of place let us know immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org
. We do our web work primarily all in house between sales and tech calls. It keeps overhead down and really is a big reason we can keep pricing this low. I just skimmed over some more of it and we will continue to fix anything that may pop up and add explanations as possible.
should i go with two A2-300's, or one A5-300???
will the two 10" in the a2-300 beat out one A5-300 with a 500w amp and high excursion
Two of the A2-300's will have every advantage in output over the A5-300 possible. The only major difference is that your looking at obviously is the size of the enclosures. Cone area really is king.
If you've got enough interest in this drop me a email at email@example.com
and as soon as the new box shows up for the LMS computer we'll run through some tests and give you some real data to show the comparisons between the products in room in whatever configuration your looking for. It just might take us a few days to run the tests.
Here is a picture of the A5-300 next to a A2-300. Keep in mind this is a pre-paint prototype A2-300 piece and obviously looks a little scruffy but the size is correct.
As far as the naming structure goes.
A2 / A3 / A5 / A7 are the series.
A2 = 200w
A3 = 300w
A5 = 500w
A7 = 1000w+
Driver designations follow the size.
250 = 10"
300 = 12"
Where it gets a little tricky is the larger / off sizes.
600 = 2 12" drivers
700 = 2 15" drivers
900 = 2 18" drivers
All the measurements on the web site are listed as a in room measurement. They are not anechoic. We are working on updating the 'how' part of the measurement this week for the website. We base our car audio products FR on in car performance so we stayed to that course with the HT products measuring them in room.
I can't stress this enough but if you see something you'd like done differently we can manufacture a product specifically for you. If your looking for different drivers / different amplifiers or have some you'd already like to use. We can likely accommodate that and build it directly into the product.
We really don't mind doing custom products. We list what we feel will be the most popular ones and mix in custom requests with those orders as they come in.
I apologize for how long it took me to get this information online. If you have any specific questions please do not hesitate to drop me a e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I'll be in production and in the warehouse helping the guys out today to keep up so it's very likely that will be the best way to get ahold of me. While we are busy it's nothing we can't handle and it's a good kind of busy. We just need to allocate people into the right places to make sure we aren't falling behind.
I also saw spikes mentioned. Spikes are on every single one of the powered subwoofer cabinets. We are working on getting more production pictures online today and tomorrow. A2-300 pics will be online today and we'll be populating the A2-250 page more as well.
Comparing the size of the A2-300 and A2-250 here are some right of paint that are in assembly / QC / QA right now that are shipping today.
A2-250 being the one on the left. A2-300 being the one on the right. The A2-300 is obviously quite a bit larger in size but if you can fit it, the output alone is worth the extra few dollars imo.
Thanks for the opportunity to share this information with you and all the interest in our products. We're amazed with the level of openness the HT world is receiving these. It's making everyone here very excited to get the full range products shipping as well.
