    I think a "group buy" thread is appropriate and I'm in.

    Everyone should check out his Facebook page, he recently wrote a real decent discussion on his issue, and it turned my opinion on him considerably more positive.

    My Digger8 get's pretty much a daily workout and is still going strong, even on an SPA1000. Absolutely love this design.

    Slicknashville - did you pay already? I hope you get your PR soon or a refund. I would be fuming in your situation.

    Here is his exact email;

    Hi Paul,

    I am working on this tonight actually and hope to finish it tomorrow. I will get it shipped this week.

    Best Regards,
    John




    Well its been 18 more days since my last communication from John.......Still no shipping info and obviously no P.R. worst company in the world to do business with....I am thinking my woofer will be wore out by the time the P.R. gets here.

    I can understand that part; when mine [finally] came in it was packaged extremely well.

    Mine works great with the Dayton PR. If I build another Digger8 I would not hesitate to use it.

    They are definitely not meeting their shipping time projections..... I don't recommend doing business with AE if you are on any kind of a deadline.
    I am still using the sub with a port for the time being, it does OK but I can hear the driver rattle like others have mentioned when I drive it hard.....

They're not quite as pretty as the units from AE and slightly more expensive I believe but they're very capable and less than the alternatives from PE and Madisound. They're available direct from CSS but coming from Canada shipping might be expensive, but it looks like they're also for sale at Meniscus Audio.

    I think CSS has a distribution deal with Meniscus because you can order drivers and some kits from Meniscus. The CSS passive radiators are available here:

    It's weird how AE works. I had heard all the horror stories and they got my 2 PR's done lickity split. I guess it all depends on how busy they are. But mine are very awesome I think. You will be impressed.

    Thanks for following up, I imagine anyone who remembers this thread was wondering how things turned out. It's a bummer that it's taking so long, running a low volume speaker business has got to be tough but you're right, unless you have all the time in the world to complete a project these times aren't what most people would consider acceptable. Kudos for being understanding and reasonable and not ranting about it.
