No, the injection mold was not paid for when the pre-order was started.

I wanted to get the SEOS-10 and 15 done. Set up the pre-order so people could pay in advance before any molds were actually...

Getting the injection molds made and getting the waveguides is very expensive. So back then when we decided to try and get the SEOS-12 made up in plastic, I set up a pre-order to help cover costs. ...

Certainly wouldn't feel right about membership fees. Heck, I couldn't track that anyway because I always have too many projects going on. :D I barely have a chance to upload new designs to the...

I'm kind of making stuff up as I follow along. :D What I'm saying is that people think a speaker sounds cleaner/crisper because better parts are being used. Certainly that can be the case, but not...

There were other reasons the original Fusion-15 didn't get ordered too much.

The SEOS project was still kind of new. It used a SEOS-12 over a 15" woofer instead of the SEOS-15. And it wasn't in...

How would the test boxes need to be built? Should they be angled boxes shooting up towards the ceiling? Flat boxes shooting down or up?

I think overstuffing might kill midbass and boost low end bass. Or at least one or the other. So that would make the speaker sound completely off and unbalanced.

4" thick Roxul inside would...

My issue is that I've tied the hands of some of the designers to shoot for a certain price point that I promised to hit years ago. But then the speakers get put up against others costing 4x more and...

Hardeng,

Do you have a photo showing how much stuffing you used in your cabinets?

Yep, the fiberglass SEOS-12 was $130 and the DE250 was $120. $250 before the woofer or crossover or front baffle or packaging and shipping. The very first designs were the A&E 12" and 15" woofers...

No, it wouldn't use all B&C parts or the price would be even higher.

I'm a bit surprised there wouldn't be more interest in a higher end speaker that could also be used full range. Maybe people...

Why would you think the kit being discussed wouldn't be an extremely good deal and maximize value like all the other kits? It would use high end parts, be very efficient, killer midbass,...

They wouldn't be $1000.

I doubt the buy out woofer stuff will be done any more because it's a huge amount of resources to put into something that isn't going to be around very long. The only...

It certainly wouldn't be $1000, I just put that range there to keep it very general, but it would fall closer in the middle.

If you need something more than the 1099, it would certainly cost...

We could obviously talk about the speaker size if there seemed to be enough interest. It would be a bit bigger than the 1099.

I've already seen the custom woofer samples and they are mean. No...
