    Adire Audio resurrected

    Just had an email from Dan Wiggins stating that Adire Audio is back in business and will be shipping drivers in September.
    They invented the XBL process, and had the Shiva, Tempest, and Brahma woofers before they went under. The XBL technology is what allowed the performance of the Exodus Anarchy woofer that Pete Schumacher has been so enamored of lately.
    Dan has passed the company on to others at this point, but feels they are very much in the same mold as the original company.

    I hope so. A good shallow mount sub might be nice, as would something unusual - perhaps a driver optimized for horns?

    Dan was also quite helpful on the boards, taught a lot and cut through a lot of BS. Hope he'll return. IIRC, that was the "bass list" which is gone; maybe he'll appear on another one like TT.

    They were quite innovative in their time, so I'm looking forward to more of that!
    Dan only gave first names for the new owners.

    I wanna know where the Maelstrom and Tumult models are. They have the Shiva, Tempest, and Brahma; why not the others?
