not as sitting on the shelf but there have been a few shipped out recently. Should have another shipment of drivers this weekend, so there is finally a good flow starting to happen

Ha! I just saw this response today. I would say I think you may be right, my effort to sell these haven't been very successful. I know think I may just sell one of them and spring for the turbo kit on the Rosewood.
Having a hard time deciding because of all the other options out there, but for now I can only use one sub. So should I get the turbo? or get an Empire, HSU or Rythmik?

To be fair, I have never heard any of the subs you mentioned. However, I did research them (and others) while waiting in line for the Turbo, just to have a Plan B in case the kits were months out. I had decided that if that was the case, I was probably going to dig deep and buy the SVS PB13-Ultra, as I wanted a huge performance increase. I was lucky to demo two of them locally (one w/ BASH amp, the other w/ Sledge amp) with my favorite demo discs - the SVS was clearly superior to the stock MFW, which was no big surprise of course. But I kept hoping the Turbo would be available since I understood that it's performance would be somewhat close to a PB13's. And buying the Turbo kit would also cost me about $1K less than an SVS.
So after putting my own Turbo kit in action, I have to say I have zero regrets about going this route. I would have preferred an internal amp to the sub, but I know that the external Dayton amp that's been tweaked by Kevin/Mark maximizes the performance. And since I also have rack space available, not a big deal for me...
Good luck with you decision! If you do end up buying a Turbo kit, I think you'll also have zero regrets...
