    Holy cow, that's great. Is the Maelstrom still going to have relatively high efficiency?

    Sweet, dual 4 ohm coils, I'll be picking up a couple Shiva's or a Tempest, My amp thanks you!

    Not sure if you can answer this but will the build materials be any different? (surround, binding posts, etc...) How bout the physical appearance?

    Wow, talk about revamping the lineup!

    I'm looking forward to some pricing info. That Maelstrom line looks oh so tasty...

    I dont work for Adire just another fellow enthusiast thats been waiting for the change [​IMG]

    For those that do not know what brought about this change read the following:
    http://www.prweb.com/releases/2004/11/prweb173381.htm


    They now have their own build complex so I imagine things could only get better as far as appearances and building materials. I would expect only minor changes if any for awhile though. Its better to make baby steps when changing all of your drivers if you ask me.

    I am excited about an 18" Tumult though [​IMG]

    Who isn't?

    This move looks like a good thing for Adire. I am curious about the new pricing for these new drivers.

    Hmm... wonder how a 15-inch Maelstrom or Brahma would work in a 122L sealed 'Tempest' enclosure. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    It's good to see some 10" drivers coming out, the market could use some variety there. Hopefully the costs will be competitive. I'd like to see the 10" Shiva around $100.

    Lets hope they offer a pre-buy discount again. [​IMG]

    I wouldn' t mind saving about 40% off a driver or two. The 10" Shiva at $100 sounds about right. Hey, maybe I can guess the ball park prices based off their previous line?

    Shiva 10" = $80, 12" = $100, 15" = $125

    Tempest 10" = $100, 12" = $125, 15" = $150

    Maelstrom 12" = $200 15" = $250 18" = $300

    Brahma (cars...)

    Tumult = 12" = $450, 15" = $500, 18" = $600

    hehe, that wasn't too bad... **REMEMBER, THESE ARE GUESSES, and maybe even some "wishful thinking".

    Ummm, why Chile? Seems like a odd location. I could see opening up shop next to Selenium.

    From Dan's announcement:
    Our search led us to South America; specifically, the country of Chile. Chile is a land with large metal reserves (iron, aluminum, and copper), a growing economy, fully democratic government, educated work force, and most importantly a stable infrastructure.

    Thanks for the link. Interesting info. Maybe they are trying to drum up international business (Chile) and they want to make theit country business friendly and affordable. Works for me!

    Page was down yesterday and gone today... hmmm... maybe they were preliminary?

    Even though we have no driver specs, I do admit that those prices do they seem pretty high given the going market. Since they've mostly sold direct, MSRP has been their "Retail" price but perhaps they are also establishing a new pricing policy.

    I'm curious... and hope Adire manages to maintain the respect they have earned from the DIY community.
