His posting is under the heading: "Is this Brand Falling Away" that had been previously started by someone else.
Goes to show that this is intentional. I am just disappointed to see Mark do this as I really had high regard for him. My mistake.

Anyone out there in receipt of the latest mfw15 turbo amps? I upgraded a couple of my mfw's a while back with the turbo kit that included swapping out the driver and added an eternal amp and they work great. . I have a couple ,more mfw's gathering dust and would like to put them to use. The current option that is available is just the built in amp upgrade (it looks like they will offer a upgraded driver again at some point).

I guess any upgrade beats the old dead amp version but reading thru the comments here have made me wonder if dropping a grand on 2 old subs might be better spent with some of the newer offerings.

I am helping out a friend who wants to put together a nice 2.1 system. He's been out of the audio market for some time but we talked about a few brands like Funk Audio and Seaton.
I see in the forums there seems to be some ongoing logistics issues. Anyone know if these things have been sorted yet? I don't want to lead my friend down the wrong path.

Being in the US you can afford the risk in IMO but you could look at others as you say like Funk, Rythmik that offer high SQ subs

I've just spent a bit more time reading in this thread. It's really unfortunate what is happening to some of the customers here. I hope everyone gets sorted. But yes I think for now we'll have to pull Seaton off the list until there's a better proven track record of customer service and post sales responsiveness.
Rythmik is a good contender but he was really drawn to the bespoke look of the Funk enclosures. The lead time is a bit of a killer though but I am sure it's worth it.

If high SQ with a custom finish is a priority and budget not an issue then Funk it is for sure.

The Funks are well worth it if you can wait their disclosed lead time, also the "Salk Rythmik" are very nice but also have lead times. These would be very good options if Seaton is of the list.

Ah good point about Salk. They can do custom finishes on Rythmik subs.

Agree 100%

Customer service should be a HUGE factor for anyone dropping serious $$ on this stuff.
