Back when I helped with the big MFW-15 group buy they gave me a tour of the factory. It was pretty neat. Like Billy said, Eminence is a really nice company to deal with and I've had nothing but good experiences with them.

Oh, and they do a good job loading pallets of woofers.....even into dump trucks!

I think Mike is in Rochester NY but I'll ask. (Billy is a nickname because I spend too much time in the mountains climbing around on rocks)

edit: Nope, he's in KY.

Where are you in NC? I am from Brevard NC.

Anthony just got back with me he said:

"Anyone can request a factory tour. We just have to find a date and time that works. Just have them email me."

You can find his email here: http://www.eminence.com/contact/

Yeah that is him.

Not sure what he is running for speakers right now. He is/was getting a custom speaker designed for him. I forgot to ask him what he was going to use for Atmos in ceiling. Of course, he may have told me, but I forgot.

He's running active now with the Beyma tpl-150H horn loaded ribbon along with I believe the ae td12m mid and 18H midbass. I know he has been extremely impressed with the 150 and I have been ITCHING to play around with some...Maybe one day
