Man the last couple of months have been a whirlwind. Appropriate since I live in Kansas. Cab designs have been updated, driver selections have been finalized, 3 separate runs of MVW cabs, and taking care of normal business, which is very good.
On the fEARful side of things, a new crossover was released that turns the 15/6 and the 12/6 into a really fine box. The original crossover was optimized for bass guitar, the new one is optimized like a PA cab. Playing music through the original was pretty good, through the new xover it turns the fEARful line into contenders for PA use. It is fairly complex, took me forever to get the parts in stock from Erse.
Fitzmaurice cabs just keep chugging along. Bill released a J array version of the Otop, really a useful update. I've yet to flatpack it, but it is on the list. BFM cabs are impossible to beat for the bucks if you're a DIY'er building cabs. And serious contenders if you're considering buying traditional cabs. The low power requirements and high output.are very attractive.
On the MVW BigE side, we've been busy. Finalized designs for the GC25 series, the WT series, and the RachÉ subs.
On the shop front Sam has spent the summer here, between semesters at college. He's faster, better and more accurate than I am in the shop. Fewer distractions help without a doubt, but the old man has been getting schooled about his construction. No new tools to speak of , except maybe that we've gone to pocket screw construction on lots of cabs. Especially on the subs it is far faster and stronger.
We've cleaned house and are trying to keep the front end neat, because people keep stopping by to hear the MVW cabs. And buying them :-). I promised demo cabs long ago to many folks, and am just now in the position to provide them. I kept selling my demos, damn the luck. The first batch of demos go out this week. I am really looking forward to hearing what they have to say, hopefully on the internet.
