Haha. Lots of speculation here. We are NOT going out of business. Let's just get that out of the way. Far from it.
Am I happy and proud that the HT line beat the nearby competition? Yes, very happy. However, I am being pulled many different directions and can only wear so many hats. We are a small company and we must focus on doing what affords us to stay in business. Unfortunately the HT series is not one of those things.
Some of you have mentioned that the pricing is close to our initial pre-order a long time ago. By our records it is the exact pricing we offered to begin with. Unless you live on the west coast the new close-out pricing should be a considerable amount less expensive than, for instance, last month's pricing. Once the remaining HT series woofers are sold off they will not be coming back.
We have plenty of parts to rebuild the HT woofers. PLENTY of parts. Don't worry about not being able to fix your HT woofer if it gets damaged. We can rebuild them.
I will also not be persuing the HST series for full production. I had entertained doing a small limited production run of HST woofers that I could build over the course of a few days but I am still undecided on whether or not I'll do that.
I fought hard with my business partner to keep the HS 24 instead of canning it and selling off all of the raw parts. I will be keeping the 24" woofer for SI and it will continue to be able to be purchased on our web page. I personally hand-build each HS 24" and I enjoy doing so very much. I almost shed a tear when one gets packed up and shipped out.
