Email sent yesterday. Anyone know what the turnaround time is on a response, or the current waiting list time?

I was out of town on vacation, New Orleans for French Quarter Fest( 20+ free music stages all over the quarter

I will drop you an email in the next few hrs when I get home from work.

Short answer is a few weeks before I see drivers.

Another MFW-15 awaiting new life!

I thought my Sub was destined to become an expensive end table, until I found this thread.

Can't wait! E-mail sent.

I assume these kits are still in production, yes?

When I got on the list mid-April, they were waiting for another batch of the drivers. ETA was a "few weeks" back then, so I surmise that they can't promise very tight timelines. I checked with sandbagger in mid May, and he wasn't aware of any updates.

I suspect it has something to do with it being a custom job with not much volume. You'd probably have to order in small batches, or risk surplus stock that you have to take a loss on. This thread is full of people waiting quite a while.

FWIW, I bought someone's broken gloss moho MFW-15 and stuck an old 70w plate amp I had laying around. I power the sub at low volumes for music... and it actually works surprisingly well. I can totally imagine that a $150/$200 subwoofer amp woud get your sub up and running again. I'll try to repair the v3 amp it came with. If I can repair it and the turbo kit ships, I'll have a spare v2 cap fix amp for anyone who doesn't want to spring for the turbo.

We actually ordered much larger quantities this time since lead times from the vendor have been so unpredictable.  They always do arrive and perform very well, but "when" is generally a guess.  Anyone want to get into driver manufacturing?  We were told we'll see the drivers arrive late next week, so we're figuring 3-4 weeks is a safer guess, but only time will tell.  We'll have more than enough for everyone who has contacted Kevin about ordering, but it might take a short while to catch up with the list once they arrive.

Thanks Mark -- we're all very appreciative of all the effort you've gone through. I have no complaints (I hope it didn't come across that way!). Supply chain is tricky, thanks for keeping us posted.

Did anyone else feel a COLD blast of air? something may be freezing over [eek]

Just received a pallet of drivers.

Still going to take some time to build up amps and get things ready to ship but now I have parts.

I am still moving a bit slow after getting my chest cracked open and not lifting anything heavy [frown] as in 32lb amp boxes and 45lb driver boxes.

That's fantastic news!  [thumb]

If you weren't 2351 miles away, I'd offer to join the unboxing party!  I'm definitely looking forward to hearing how progress goes - but don't kill yourself [nono]

Got drivers in about a week ago, in the process of building amps up and will be shipping late this week or early next.  Just waiting on face plates to come back from the CNC cutting.

If your not on the wait list now would be a good time to email me

KITS IN STOCK

Going to bump this up as I now have a few kits in stock.  With many more drivers on the way

I am in the process of contacting everyone that has ever been on the wait list.  Once you have been emailed I will not be contacting anyone on the list again.  it will simply be email me and purchase unless we get to the point were I need to create a list again.

I don't think I've missed any emails, so perhaps you have me confused with someone else? Either way, I've sent you my shipping address for a shipping quote. LMK if you don't get it?
