Okay, okay... I am up to no good. mwmkravchenko almost let slip with the goods, and so I was almost successful. Since I registered here I have moved to Abbotsford. The thought that I would support a local business and end up with such a great driver is cool. Not to mention that the only decent sub that I can afford right now has got to be DIY.
I met with Dan W today and have authorized a production sample to be built and tested before the complete production run is authorized. It turns out that we had to go to a different factory and we believe we have found the right one. That makes 4 factories that I will no longer do business with and explains part of the delay as well as the shift in business model being adopted. More to come next month.
That looks like the beginning of the bridge arch on Picard's Enterprise. I have a vision in my head of a 2 row home theater with a arch bar behind the 2nd row with 2 integrated touch screens and any home automation controls or such to create a Trek feel to it in a otherwise mundane build. "Torpedo's ready captain!" I also would install my X-Arcade tankstick and a digital plungger in the center of the two flanking touch screens for some retro arcade action.
What's sad is I bought a pair of 1st Gen sdx's right when they came out but, due to unfortunate moving circumstances and military duty, I am just now able to put one (sold the other) into my newly founded media room. Just in time for the new model to come out.
