I have been busy all week working on paint fixtures. Sounds lame, but now I can paint a dozen Conquests at once without them touching the ground. It will speed things up over here considerably.
I will definitely answer all of the questions that have been asked here. I will read back through them later today and address them one at a time.
According to the shipping invoice its 363 pounds.. Even if you include a pallet (what like 40 pounds) and the packaging (maybe 20-25 pounds), its a bit over the 250 pounds I was expecting. Maybe this sub is a bit heavier than I thought. It looks like I will be needing some help. Maybe i'll go pickup a hand truck or some moving equipment.
The Conquest is fully crated in 1/2 inch OSB and 2 x 4's with 2 inches of foam covering almost the entire speaker. The crate weighs a lot, so it still won't weigh as much as you think once it is out of the box.
We make sure they are bulletproof when they leave this place.
The narrowest dimension of the exterior package is 36" so it will probably be neccesary to remove the packing before you take the sub through a standard 31-33" door inside the house.
The crated subwoofer sits on a pallet when shipped. It allows us to forklift it onto the truck easily and prevents damage during shipping if the shipping company decides to move it around.
Once you get the subwoofer, you just clip the plastic strapping with a scissors and take it off the pallet. The width is only about 26.5 inches in the packaging. It will very easily get through a door.
We spent a lot of time thinking about the dimensions before it was made for this very reason. I just don't want people thinking it is three feet wide and can't fit through a door. It just happens that we over-protect the subwoofers when we ship them.
