I'm not too concerned about the horns that were ordered on past pallets and not paid for. Eventually I'll figure out something to do with them. I was just explaining why we need to change things on future group buys like this so they worked out better in the end. Basically, it's a learning experience.
There are other issues that I will have to discuss later. Nothing to do with the SEOS-24.
Seems to me like an opportunity to discuss purchasing molds and producing the most popular horns and waveguides here in the USA. Is that a possibility? There are also many people here that can generate those profiles which could potentially be another exciting DIY effort from this group, imo.
This pallet might still work okay because there were more items added during the final week, so the larger number of horns will divide out better with the higher priced shipping. I'm pretty sure there were over 60 pieces on this pallet. So there's a chance it will all divide out okay.
Once this spring is over, things will really get interesting. I've hired an extra guy to take some of my landscaping hours away and free up more time for audio stuff. Then I can actually get the site completed.
Erich, I got my package yesterday. Outstanding packing and service as always, I actually was equally excited for what was IN the box as I was to see the packing you employed since I had a random assortment of stuff. Once again you didn't disappoint! I owe you some bucks for shipping, can you PM me the amount?
Also, you went above and beyond on the baffles. Unexpected but highly appreciated.
Hey Erich, you PM'd me a while ago about helping you with some stuff and I have not heard from you again. I know you have a lot going on but if you can find the time to respond to my last PM I would appreciate it!
You don't need to use bondo. Just sand it down with a sander and it should be pretty darn smooth. If you're using Duratex paint, there's no other step needed. If you're doing something else for a really smooth finish, you can fill in any glue lines or seams with the bondo, epoxy, wood filler, spackling, etc.
It's suppose to rain tomorrow so I went out to Kentucky to pick up the pallet today. Normally I just take my pick up truck for the pallet. But my dump truck was still warmed up, so I figured I would just take that. It's a good thing I did because this pallet is bigger than the other 3 I got in the past. I don't think it would have fit in my truck bed. That explains the extra $1200. But it's still not a justifiable increase for the extra pallet size.
This pallet is roughly 50" x 63". That's a good sized pallet, but not 50% bigger to justify a 50% increase in shipping prices. Not much we can do about that now.
I will say that it's packaged good with no signs of damage. That's always a huge relief because I'm stuck with any problem pieces.....which is why it worries me.
Anyway, the SEOS-24 is an absolute beast. I'll try to get a photo up in a little bit. I need to check the camera batteries to see if I've got enough juice left.
great news i hope u can get some emails out soon i still havent payed for seos 24s or the shipping on bms cd yet
That's because I haven't shipped them yet. I am behind on emails because of the time of year. It's normally 7:30 am - 7:00 pm or so work days for about a month until things settle in. Luckily I have interwebz access at the shop now....because that's where I am after work.
