However, there have been recent submersive and F18 orders, so they currently only have enough amplifiers in stock to accommodate his existing orders; therefore, any new orders of submersives/f2s/f18s will need to wait until they get their next shipments of amplifiers, which he said should arrive within 2 weeks (which would be by feb 19th).
Early orders of F18s are shipping out today with more shipping through the course of the week. We were able to get more amplifiers on the way, so we'll have some inventory for new orders arriving late Thursday. One of the customers getting 8 can wait for the next batch as they are still remodeling the theater, so we have 15 available to ship next week as of this morning.

Thats great news. I'll be sure to post pictures. Sounds like I'll have these Thursday the 4th? Please forward fed ex tracking. You can email it. Thanks...


EDIT: doh! I already had tracking. Was checking wrong email. Thanks Mark. This has been the easiest purchase ever. Can't wait for the beastly subs to arrive.

I got home and two of my three subs are here!

They are packaged very well and I'm excited!

I was tripping out earlier thinking one was missing but turns out fed ex just didn't put third on truck. Lol that's how big they are. Oh well should be here tomorrow or Monday.

Mark said that he was going to correct the problem, I guess he hasn't got to it yet.

He does not have a formal website. The only site they have is http://www.seaton-sound-forum.com/. The site has all the information you'd need - Product information, pictures, availability etc.

Last night I dropped 6 F18s off at a local customer's home. "Intense" would be a great description... and yes, he's looking forward to hearing Catalysts at Axpona so he can properly keep up with them rather than the pair of DefTech towers at each location. For scale, that's an 85" flat panel, and the vaulted ceiling above the triple stack of F18s starts at ~12'.

where are you seeing the 2nd center channel?

EDIT: Never mind had to turn up the brightness of monitor a tad.

Who needs 4K?... just go see your optometrist.

It took me a second to see it as well. I don't think I ever seen a setup like that would be curious as to how it sounds and what AV equipment are they using.

Indeed, we will have 2 stacks of four F18s in the room at Axpona, April 15-17th.

Yes, I believe an enterprising salesperson convinced the owner to just double up on the big Deftech towers rather than searching out more capable speakers. Good eye on the pair of center channels under the TV. In case anyone is thinking this is a cool idea, it does NOT work very well. You do get more sound, but not better sound.

That sounds dangerously close to implying "overkill", which of course doesn't exist. Anything worth doing is worth overdoing

Man- they look fantastic! Nice space too. Considering the placement options we discussed, but may require some dust, HAHA.

Mark,

Maybe this has been asked and answered before, but are you considering offering two F18s in one cabinet, basically an 18-inch version of the F2+?

Seeing all these stacked 18-inch subs, it seems to me it would make sense to offer a product with two front-facing 18-inch drivers in one cabinet.

Thanks.

I would guess NOT
Mark likes his back.

you would be looking at a cabinet almost 4ft tall at that point, between the weight and size I would not want to ship it either
