mrmagloo, I wouldn't say the 12" is low end, he only makes high end subs and thats been his focus for a while. There is probably another high end dual 18" monster coming as he also hinted at a product in the $2000 price range. I don't think they've been there or offered products at that price, save for the intro conquest price. I have high hopes he'll continue to do his best since he treats it more like a passion than a job, gotta respect that. It's not strange to think he he more products lined up is it? The Empire is what, his 9th or 10th sub? Yes Epik has been around for 3 years but this is, as they say, the tip of the iceberg really
Rkp - No, I didn't mean lower quality by any stretch, but more in the way of replacing the lower end of the former product line, the Vanquish and Sentinals (the 12"ers), instead of the Phoenix, Dynasty, Conquests (the 18"ers). Imho, everything they've made is a great product. Although he told me he was working on smaller, modular Conquest replacment, that very well have been the Twin Empires? I dunno, but I'll be all over that dual 18", if there's any truth to that. If we're lucky, he'll offer a Twin Everest (or whatever he'll call them) deal too!

mdm - I'm starting to wonder if you're partially retarded or something? Are you completely unable to rationally discuss the product and the company this thread was created for, or are you just one of those spineless dweebs that lurk in the shadows and snip at people from the anonymous safety of their tiny subterranean apartments?
Let me say this, again, for the umpteen time. Nobody questions he makes great stuff. If he's worried about folks speculating, debating misinformation, and what the future might bring, that's real easy to solve. Provide clear, consistent guidance, spec's and documentation, and respond promptly to inquiries from both new customers and old. When you give inconsistent tidbits to different folks and force people to try and piece things together, that's just not helpful on any level and is exactly why this kind of stuff happens. Nobody wants to harp on some of the growing pain issues, but sweeping them under the rug certainly doesn't help anything. I trust even the most cerebrally challenged resident can figure that out, right mdm? Or, am I giving you too much credit?
