New year, new stuff, new outlook.
This is the year it all happens. MVW cabs come to market. New DIY Designs from the BigE guys. New DIY designs from Bill Fitzmaurice. New DIY designs from another famous designer are on the way. We are stepping up the game this year.
TBH the last few months or so SpeakerHardware hasn't met my expectations. I've had delays, slower shipping than I want, UPS and Fedex slowing down, trouble getting parts, and me. Part of it is growing pains. I've outgrown my systems yet again and have to develop new ones for pulling parts and tracking inventory. We are finally on track though with Sam running his own shop in Lawrence, which will speed up flat packs considerably. He has far more time to run a shop than I do. We are going to improve everything we can as quickly as we can.
On the tool front I am on the hunt. Prep work takes a long time on the MVW and BFM cabs. Braces, horn throats, and deep cabs make getting into the corners a real pain. I use these little rascals currently, and they work really really well.. The MicroZips are on my site, but I don't have them in stock yet. For the volumes of cabs I'm starting to do I need a powered solution for more speed. None of the long nose belt sanders I've found will work. I think I'm going to have to build one.
That's all for now. Hope all of you have a prosperous and LOUD new year!
