There are only a few other items that indicate "In Stock".
Lastly, from what I've been reading here on AVS and on eD's forums, it seems as as if most people with recent orders have gone a custom route with items built to order.
Right, one of the items listed as "In Stock" is the subwoofer the OP ordered. I suspect it has everything to do with the amplifier.
As I said, eD should have just told the OP that the sub with that amp combo is on backroder and to expect at least a 6-8 week delay and that they would do their best to get it sooner.
Is that really so hard?
There are many ID companies that keep very good stock of their subwoofers and ship either the same or next day.
This issue is nothing new to eD. I remember being told 7-10 days to build and ship my A2-300. It was closer to 5 weeks (even thought the item said it was "In Stock" when I ordered it.
Even eD knows this is not good business and promised to streamline things. They just need to follow-through or just become a custom shop and let people up front know everything is hand built with very long wait times.
