Just a heads up
Good to know, thanks! Ditto with SI on the Black Friday orders showing up the middle of last month, there was actually a thread a few weeks ago asking about when people have received their SI orders, and the order in question was placed on Black Friday I believe.
I would think FI would be decent based on having a build house that makes their drivers for them in Vegas, but apparently I am wrong.
That being said, I'm not sure what the wait times are for PSI, but they will definitely custom build you a driver that is very high quality and more HT oriented.
Depending on where you are located (East Coast, West Coast, somewhere in-between), you could get a hold of Pierce Audio out of Washington State. I know Gorilla Killa had great results with communication and the wait time was only like 3 weeks for a custom build.
At any rate, I definitely wouldn't limit myself to 15s as a max size. Plenty of 18s will be capable of fitting boxes in your size range, and the extra cone area is definitely worth it. Just realize that no matter what you go with, a single sub is only capable of so much SPL, and odds are (especially around these parts of AVS) you will want MOAR in short order after experiencing real bass.
