From what I understand they are not building anymore custom cabinets. I think they're gonna focus on their own product line for now. But give them a call, ya never know.

Eric, did you test the drivers free air yet? If you didn't, there is a good chance you could die...... just saying

Good idea, you want to make sure they function correctly before mounting them into the ed enclosures once they arrive. Not sure about the chances of dying though

I've made that mistake before, not one I'll ever make again though!

Well, If you do die from not doing it, you won't know you're dead LOL

Dang guys! Let the body get cold at least!

So just finished up the free-air tests. Everything looks good. No weird noises or anything like that. Subs look to move free and smooth.

I wish I had the tools, time, & skill to build the cabinets myself. But the more I think about giving it a try the easier it seems to just send someone money. lol

Fedex tracking is listing Friday as the delivery date.

Cabs are here.

They survived the trip without any mishaps. The packaging was minimal, but stuff was placed in the correct spots to avoid any damage. They are very very well made. They have a textured finish very similar to my old Conquests, and like the Epiks the boxes are SOLID.

Time to put them together.
