Well guys. FEDEX says it is on a truck to be delivered in my city so I should have it tonight. I am going home for the evening so hopefully I can report back tomorrow with good news.

Thursday I get mine but I have a gig and have to leave by 5 to get there in time, so I guess it will be the weekend for me to really test her out.

First review of the A5-350 that I have run across. This guy exchanged his A5-300 for the A5-350 last week. Enjoys!

Well, mine is now in Ct. and I live in NH. so it should be here Thursday.
I am 100% sure it will come after I leave for my gig and it has to come upstairs to enter my house.
Doubt my wife will wrangle it up for me.

The Icix review was ok, but not real in depth.
I'm sure others will better do a review we all can enjoy.
I'll be writing a review for it in the coming weeks.

Yes, but they were wrong.

Black and black chrome aren't the same The black spikes look like total crap since the paint will flake off pretty easily.

They'll all be shipping with the spikes + metal for under them as far as I know.

[No] sir [I am] an oak.

Ha, enough movie quotes for now.

You get your unit yet? I'd like to see a detailed review on it soon! It'll hold me over until mine arrives.

Not yet. I don't know what the deal is. It said yesterday at 7am that it was on a truck for delivery. Nothing came yesterday. It says the same thing today, hopefully when I get home from work it will be sitting on my porch.

I think someone just doesn't want to lift the thing off the truck.

When you get your sub be sure to take lots of pics!
I hope it lives up to your expectations.

From the discussion I had with my FedEx rep today, apparently since these are valued at over $400(we don't want to get a check for $100 if FedEx breaks one) they will require a signature.

Well, not really FedEx, but their insurance company rather. It's their butt if something is stolen from in front of a house and apparently things under $100 they don't care about writing a check it's the $500 checks that they don't want to write.

Yikes, I was at Fedex on the way home today to see if I could arrange an earlier delivery and just got in to get the number to call and it is in a day early!
I could have missed it while trying to help myself.
So I may have it today.

Just got notice that mine has moved in to the woodshop.

Can't wait to hear some reviews while I am waiting for mine to be built.

Exactly, I really wasn't worried too much with someone trying to run off with it. On a positive note. With extremely great timing. I went home for about an hour just to hang out crossing my fingers that FEDEX would come while I was home. Sure enough they did! Can you talk about unbelievable timing. I was just going to leave a note on the door with my signature hoping he would just leave it. Don't have to worry about that now. I mean what are the odds of me actually being there at the same time he was. Anyway, I unboxed it, took some pics and played with it for a second before coming back to work. I am pretty impressed with what I heard. Of course I do not have it properly calibrated yet or it's not even sitting the right way because I have to wait for the spikes but so far pretty impressed.

Ahaaa, so you don't have spikes.
I'm curious now about mine..(still waiting for the truck).

Sweet...Just got an email that my A3-300 with the "free 13Ov2 driver upgrade" has been moved into the woodshop. Did anyone else order this sub with the upgrade? Or can someone who owns the A3-300 give me their thoughts on this sub. Thanks in advance.

I was seriously thinking about going from a2-300 to a3-300, but lack or reviews kept me away. I am not out to be a pioneer.
