No, I was here last night lol!

The last FedEx truck was over filled (must be a busy week for them too) and yours are going on today's truck, along with many others. So you should have a living room of boom by about Tuesday.

BTW this includes the second sub you recently added, so you will get receive both.

Wow! That's an incredible price! Tempting to buy two for room smoothing at that price to add to my lone Orbit Shifter.

I stayed up late Thursday night packing up 3 pallets, (guess what was in one? lol) only to find out Friday that freight wasnt running. Must be nice.

Its running Monday for sure and we will have quite a bit of freight and ground being picked up!

Hah, right? I worked 10 hour shifts on Thursday, Friday and today.

Looking forward to seeing that giant 18 wheeler navigate the small rural streets near my house. It looks so out of place, my neighbors probably think I'm receiving exotic animals from overseas or something.

I'm lucky that my couch is the only listening area in my room so I put my OS directly behind it and have no problems with FR across the three sitting spots on the couch. Btw, OS nearfield crushes.

Wow! That has to be incredible! Mine is next to the wall about six or seven feet from the main listening position and I get very good impact from that position so i couldn't imagine with an OS being even closer. The new Echo 21 looks really promising!

Anyone gone from a SVS PB2000 to a Reaction Audio sub? I currently have a PB2000 in a 3200 cu ft room(14'x21'x11') and wanted to move that to the living room soon. Would a Echo 15 blow a PB2000 away?

If your budget is $1000, Echo 15 is the one to get. However, if your budget is higher, I recommend Echo 18 because it has even more output and is on sale for $1250.
Thanks! The PB2000 was placed in between one of the tower speakers and the tv stand. After doing the sub crawl, I found out the optimal placement was next to the MLP. I was planning on fixing this issue by getting 2 PB2000 and placing them in between the towers to even out the bass. If an Echo 15 is like having 2 PB2000s, then I'd definitely be happy with that. I'd jump on the Echo 18, but I'm currently saving up for new speakers and a TV.

BTW, how's the finish on these subs. Anybody have any complaints?

@edgebsl,

Jeremy, any updates? Have the new amps come in yet? When do you anticipate the Gamma 21's to start shipping?

Does the echo 18 ship via freight? I live close in to a big city and the streets here are pretty tight. My street with cars on both sides parked has room for only one car width...

I could have it shipped to my work if that is better Jeremy?

Everything is on track. The mass shipment of 21" parts are all in and the first round of drivers are being assembled and clamped now. I look to have the first big batch of 2400Ht amps here in about one week with the silk screening.

We got our first 4000HT sample and have been testing it thoroughly and it is fantastic.
We will be making a move to use these with the Echo 18 XL very soon.

Once everything is here, assembly and shipping will go very,very fast I believe. Boxes and foam are all set to go as well. We should beat Santa's Reindeer for the first big round of shipments easily.

@billiam 1982, forgot to share this with you last week.

The CX-10 cabinets got a nice little port upgrade!

Yes due to the size and weight, the Echo 18 should be shipped via Freight Carrier.

We can ship to your work if that is easier for you?

Looks great! Out of curiousity, is it possible to retrofit older CX-10's with those?

Also, are you planning the same thing for the CX-8?

Yeah, might be better to ship to my work, but I'd need to have a better idea of when it would be delivered since it'll be close to the holiday and need to make sure the office will be open. Any closer estimate on lead times?

Will you be able to transport the pallet back to your house? I had it dropped right in my garage where I could unpack it at my leisure and not have to move it around.

I figured i'd take it off the pallet and load it into my truck with the help of someone. I think it'd be best if i called whatever freight company Jeremy uses and ask them if delivering to me would be a problem or not.

This would work. We usually use R and L or Southeastern and in either case, they will generally call to schedule delivery once it reaches destination city. You may be able to ask them questions directly and discuss options. If you decide to change destination address, just let me know.

Unfortunately no, since the holes are different sizes. You would need an entirely new cabinet.
As far as the CX-8 is concerned nothing right now but we have many plans once will plow through the rest of the year's fulfillment.

About 10 ft although you can use any standard universal AC cable.

Pardon my ignorance, but what was changed? Is there some sonic improvement or just aesthetics?

The Blu-Rays should play a lot better via your player than on your speakers

You order the 21's yet?
