Thanks for all the great work so far, James. Put me down for a pair. I would actually like 3 speakers if possible, so one could be used as a center channel.

Bob - Any number is possible, as long as you give advance notice. Who's up for five? No problem.

Today we listened to them at the proper height for the first time [had to contrive more inimitable risers]. Sound is very big and impressive - no sense of point-source or smallness at all. Seamless blending with a Sunfire sub.

The new material for making the latest prototype cabinets will arrive soon, and then the router has to go to work. Also, we have to order parts for the crossovers - lots of different parts, so different values for things can be tried.

Ok, I have added a DEPOSIT button to my signature. If I put it anywhere else in the thread I'm sure it would get lost.

The deposit amount is $310 per set of speakers. This will cover all the drivers and some of the small parts.
From the looks of things so far, I will have to place a $5000-6000 order for the drivers alone based on the number of speakers requested already. I understand not everyone will have the money right now, and that's fine. I am planning on making a number of orders over the next couple months, and can add more drivers to the orders as they are needed.
BUT... there will have to be some sort of "cut off" point sooner or later. I am thinking some time in March or April.

I will need plenty of time to get all the kits assembled and packaged up way BEFORE CarverFest. I will have allot of work to do to get these ready for a small production run, and then the real works starts. So, please DO NOT wait till the last minute to place your orders. The sooner we have all the drivers we will need in-hand the better I will feel, and I won't have to worry about their inventory running low as we get closer to Sep.

I spoke to the sales rep today, and their next batch of ribbons is scheduled to come in on Dec 2nd. So we should be good on driver inventory for the next couple months anyway.
