  1. Maybe the 12's take up too much space? That'd be the only reason I'd switch, personally. Personally, for that price range, I'd look into the Tantric LD8's. They are right in that price range shipped.
  2. With that equipment a 140 should be easy out the gate unless it is something terribly wrong with the install. Hate to be the one to agree, but I did a 140.5 with the equipment in my sig in a Neon. Something isn't right. Edit: Never updated my score in my sig, but it's on the MECA website in 2012, if you want to look it up. I guess since everything is subject to criticism then I'd say your score was low too. This was the guys first ever time on the mic. With the information given I am to assume he didn't really know his peak frequency since he claimed to be tuned @ 28hz and metered at 43hz. Hell my first time on the meter I got a 143.8 with a single 15" Obsidian on an AQ2200 at 2 ohm in a pre-fab. Check MECA website in 2013 if you want to look that up in AS2. Truth is as a competitor I'm glad the OP has come out and gotten his system metered because the sport has been in a slow decline over the past 20 years. Every competitor we can get is a new challenge to me. I'm sure he knows that he can do better and I believe he can as well. I just hope he sticks it out and keeps coming to the shows and gets louder each time. *** after edit *** OP - after reading this it had me go back to check my progress with last years numbers. They increased each show mostly lol Just keep up the work and you'll keep gaining. Show 1 - 143.8db Show 2 - 144.9db Show 3 - 145.0db Show 4 - 146.9db Show 5 - 146.8db (Not sure what happened here lol) Show 6 - 147.0db Show 7 - 146.1db (Tried metering on a different side at this show with no 2nd run) Show 8 - 147.7db I never said my score wasn't low. Way to take my post in the wrong way.
  3. preorder pricing will end when the motors arrive or 75 percent of my order is preordered. If orders keep coming like they are I'll be sold out the first week of September. Damn, always a little late for me. I'll be ordering likely towards the end of September.
  4. Any idea of when the pre-order pricing will be over?

  6. Well, I was looking at DSP's and such, so if this will end up doing what I need/want it to do, looks like I may end up buying more than just an Ethos from you.
  7. Yay, specs soon
  8. Quentin, could you send me that file as well? I'd like to see if I'd be able to fit that in my Explorer Sport. If so, I may do the 18 instead of the 15 I was planning on. Edit: ScottKeffer@gmail.com
  9. Doesn't matter, there is still absolutely no excuse for this. Even if it was announced, the message they are sending to their dealers is that they don't care about them. Furthermore, it was mishanlded after the fact of actually making contact. Whomever answered the phone should have called Jacob or the person who makes the Nightshades and informed them that they need one assembled ASAP and overnighted. That is the only way to make this right, given the OP's comments are the full truth. So, basically, the ONLY way that Sundown can have good CS is to make sure that nothing ever goes wrong. Furthermore, they have to be at work, at all times, to make sure they can answer the phones, emails, and such, 24/7. They also have to make sure that things are fixed immediately, including warranty claims. To me, it sounds like Brandon was trying, by him telling you that they had to file that claim with FedEx, and the NS guy is out for a week as well. Even had he been there, the claim still has to go through. For you to just basically be like "Well, that's not good enough, so you know what, eff you and your company", it's no wonder he said what he did. There's only so much they can do, they are human after all.
  10. Sweet. I'm asking because I'm set on running an Ethos, but I'm debating between 18 or 15. I have an enclosure already if I go 15 (3.0 net tuned to 30). Although, I want to do something different, and 18's are certainly different around here...
  11. Specs yet? Inquiring minds want to know
  12. Didn't happen to pull specs from it yet, have you?
  13. I had mine in 3.0 net tuned to 30hz with ~45 sq inches of port on about 2kw daily. It didn't do bad at all
  14. This is what Nick told me in an email back in February. Nice. Wonder what kind of power handling and price on them. I'm leaning more SQ-ish with my new build, and the "old" Flatlyne was one of my main choices. Hoping this new one will be even better.
  15. Doesn't explain the lack of images for the "new" ones.
