You might try texting his  cell phone (if you have the number); or sending him a PM from here.  For reasons I have never understood, Mark, on occasion, seems to go into a communication black hole but eventually emerges.  He runs a small company and maybe he just decides to not take phone calls (or emails) until he gets caught up on doing whatever he is doing. I know it can be frustrating but I can say the end product you purchase from him will be worth it.

YESSSSSSSSSS!!!!  Eight F18s arrived today, and I am a kid in a candy store.  Only managed to wrestle two of these behemoths down the stairs to the basement, and through two rooms to the theater.  I'm ready for a nap!  Unboxing photos below! 














Two down, six more to go. :-)

I picked up some F18's as well.  Very heavy and super well engineered.  My wife helped me get them down to the theater.  8 will definitely do the trick.  Followed your build on AVS Beast, fantastic theater and super equipment.  Have fun setting them up!!! [biggrin]

Congrats on snagging the F18s. These subs are the future of the industry. Thanks for the kind words on the room--it's been a real labor of love over a really long time.

I would tend to agree with you.  What I still have trouble comprehending is why the fascination with 21 or 24  inch or larger subs?  I would rather have dual 18's for about the same price: at least comparing two F18's to, for example, a DSS 24. Easier to move around, better, FR, etc.  Except for those few rooms which don't have the room.  Then stack 2 F18's (Master/Slave) and still have better results.

Having owned the driver driver in the DSS 18, there is no comparison to it and the F18.  And since the DSS 24 is built by the same company as the 18, I'm sure is has a similar sonic signature.

I know Mark was once looking at doing a 21 or 24 inch sub, so maybe he can chime in with his rationale for even thinking about doing so.  Outside of "bragging rights", what is the deal?

Ok so just real quick. I have a f2 and was really considering getting a slave for it. But say I put and master and slave f18 up front and put my f2 in the back would that be good. I don't have a ton of funds hence my interest in the slave f2. I could always slave f2 now and then do a master/slave f18 later for the rear that way I have 4 subs then rather than buying the master/slave f18's now and only having three subs. Fudge I don't know. Haha

I would do a slave F2 now and later on blend in the F18's.  This approach provides the best of both worlds...>30hz slam of the F2's and the grunt of <30hz of the F18s.  That's what I did...I like the aesthetics of both and they seem to work well together in my space according to REW...since they are both built by Mark the sound and roll off characteristics are similar.

I'll be updating threads and product availability over the next few days.  We have a bunch to ship out today and tomorrow, but I wanted to quickly post to confirm that we have up to 6 F18's which can ship early next week (black maple and 2 rosenut available), in either slave or + form.

Beyond the handful we currently have in stock, F18s will be readily available in black maple finishes for any quantity by December 12th.

The ability to add additional subwoofers for about 1/2 off is quite a deal. Now I had wanted to hear a couple of these F18+ and slave someday without my current HP+ & Submersive. I had needed new surround sound speakers and waited till i saw from an email That Klipsch had a Huge sale on even Palladium line 50% off and got The forward facing 7's with some type of Titanium tweeters shooting out ofmeachnsidemthat will fit on the upper back wall Jist behind current klipsch plain book shelf speakers.
So anytime if you have a day that I could pay enough to maybe come on out and possibly demo The f18's or f2 since forward facing - well submersives sounded food when on front wall but maybe preamp fault since had to unplug slave sub and still a -12db too much with movies when before it was Tje opposite

We did sell through the few F18s we had available this week but will have good stock of black maple F18 + and slave units available to ship early next week, along with one rosenut and two black oak F18 cabinets in stock.
