As we all know from the website, Exodus and DIY Cable are (sadly) closing down. The Anarchy woofer/subwoofer that Kevin designed is really something special, and I was hoping it wouldn't go away. So I've been talking with him for a while to see if it was okay for us to somehow keep the Anarchy in production. I'm happy to say that Kevin has agreed to let me keep this little beast going. This should be great news for the DIY guys.
The Anarchy has always been an 8 Ohm woofer. But after talking to a few others, I've decided that a 4 Ohm model might be a good idea to get made up. Obviously it can be used as a subwoofer, so a standard sub amp will work perfectly. They can also be used in a MTM design or tower speaker and give an 8 Ohm load. Seems like a win win situation. Of course everything will be exactly the same as the current Anarchy. Same manufacturer, same molds, same parts, everything. Just an ohms change.
I contacted the manufacturer and they will be getting some prices together. They said it's been a little while since the last order, so of course prices have changed. But I still believe they will be priced okay. Having said that, in the next week or so I will be putting up a preorder just like we did with the SEOS project. Hopefully that will help make things easier.
Yes, there will be Anarchy tapped horn flat packs made up. I will also do my best to get some really nice speakers designed around these woofers once they're here. In the end, the DIY community should have some more gear to work with, and another shot at keeping this woofer around.
I think everyone here knows Kevin is a man of his word and a genuinely good person. He's given me permission to do this, but obviously isn't going to want a bunch of emails asking about this woofer or project. So let's try to keep any questions in this thread.
