I have not "promised" anything here... As stated in the 1st post, I would like to see in the neighborhood of 300 pre-wants before I spend the time and money on making them from scratch.
I spoke to Bob about these drivers, and surround last night for a little while.. He said to stop looking of the original comapny, "It's out of business" and the drivers were OEM for Carver... If there are any others floating around, they are probably NOS. I asked him about foam vs. Butyl rubber for the new surrounds, and he agreed that Butyl surrounds is the way to go for new ones.
I also spoke to RobertR the other night on the phone via China. He said he has had no luck what so ever on tracking down anything close to the original surrounds. Robert said if need be, he will order the rest of the surrounds himself to make up the full order... I don't like having to dump that kind of financial burden on 1 guy, to cover the cost of that many surrounds, but if we don't get more commitments to orders, then it may be the only way to get it done.
Put in your surround quantity requests NOW. The sooner we get the number up, the sooner I will start on the project.
