The small sealed 12 will be sourced from China(along with the amp and cabinet). I outlined the reasons for his a few times in the past---going back years actually. If you want to offer a quality powered home audio subwoofer in these price brackets there's literally no choice but to go overseas.
Now that's NOT to say quality or support will suffer. First, I'm working with a development group I have business experience with dating back to circa 2004-2005. This isn't "let's find the low bidder" stuff. This is, "okay, I KNOW these guys, I know how much pride they take in their work" And, just as important, they KNOW me. They know what I expect
Next, every product will go through a series of QC checks in Ohio. We'll do the final assembly here and bench check each amp, program them, verify the program loaded properly, assemble and then run our standard series of production line tests to ensure output, FR, no buzz/rattles,etc. I put our QC up against it--every day. That's never going to change. (ask the shop guys..
) If anything, these will be put under a more intense microscope.
See attached. Nothing fancy. But a nice little 12 inch workhorse and just the tip of an iceberg...
