I don't believe Tom will create a LT sub unless it could deliver the mid bass PSA is known for.
But I wonder if the B&C drivers would make a low tune TV1512 possible? Of course the next question is what would the final cost be? I don't know if it's possible to do at an affordable cost but if it is I think it would sell decently.
Anything is possible I suppose. Right now, my knee-jerk is "I never want to go through another new product introduction ever again..." But I already have about half a dozen new ideas(and proto types for some) that I believe would be popular. So I really just need one day off(like today) to re-energize..
The 21ipal PR
sub is one possibility for example. I can't get over the size/performance ratio we have here. But, on the other hand, I CAN get over how much time I will need to invest in the design to ensure things like logistic stability and system longevity. Bennett(B&C rep) was here for a couple hours last week and we had all sorts of interesting conversations. I believe we're just scratching the surface of what we can bring to the end user with our combined experience in the industry. But one proto type he wasn't enthusiastic about was the PR
sub. He took one look at that and just said something like "oh no, you don't want to go down that road...21ipal 4000w or so? PRs?, Small box? No, just no."
But that actually made me want to do it even more. Been that way all my life for some reason for good or bad...probably more bad.
I felt just like Rocket when Thor(Bennett) is explaining why something is a bad idea...
And with each idea i have I need to take a step back and be honest with myself. Is this the most beneficial introduction/ return on investment for PSA or is this more for my own ego/can I figure this out and make it work?
I mean so what if I get the PR
sub optimized for both performance and longevity? So what if I get the logistics to work? If we get 2 sales a month...not really a good use of company resources.
