    Watch out, Brett. You'll have Hank making a bee line for PA with anything negative about Texas. You know that his new Beemer has all kinds of extra goodies inside, him being a James Bond fan and all! [​IMG]

    Also my Blueprint is comparable to most of those mentioned above. Since the company is no longer in business, you have to look around like audioliquators.com, and some people still have lots of them, new, just stashed away. I got mine for $45, which is a good deal, dont’cha think…?

    I have to echo Joel's comment. The thread in the Stryke forum about the preorder for the SA12s is gone and I can't find any reference to them anywhere on the website.

    Yep, we could secede any day and have our own army and navy ready to go. First thing I'd do is raise the price of the natural gas that we pipe to you boys that costs less in Kentucky than here at home. Go figure. Let's see...what position would I want...got it! Cultural ambassador.[​IMG]
    Those of you who buy French speakers for snob appeal could brag on importing speakers from the nation of TEXAS.

    Getting back to the first issue - the Stryke Audio SAE drivers. I saw them some time ago, they seem to be excellent value, I can't see why they seem so rarely used. It seems quite comparable to the Shiva and Dayton 12" but a little cheaper. First impression seems to be that they are a little more competitively priced as they don't have the same reputation. If I could get more info on them I'd look into them more, but the site hasn't been updated.

    Has anyone looked at these woofers? Seen a DIY sub using them? Done simulations?

    cheers
    Paul
