    Just wondering this. I just ordered mine and they told me it would be ready for shipping on November 13th. It doesn't bother me, it just seems like they have always been on backorder. Why?

    Hehe, when I ordered mine in late March, the Tempest was in stock but the AVA250 ended up being on backorder for almost 2 months.

    As much as I love Adrie products and I appreciate Dan's help on the forums its this reason that when I built my last sub I ended up going with the Parts Express 15" DVC which for all intense purposes is a Tempest clone.

    I have a couple in stock in case you did not want to wait or needed it sooner than the 13th. If it doesnt bother you to wait then you may just want to keep your order, but I thought I would let you know.

    Unfortunately, these things have caught on VERY well with the car audio crowd, and we shipped out all the rest of our stock prior to IASCA finals last weekend. We'll have them back in stock as soon as possible, and are upping our maintained stock levels to avoid this in the future.
    I think Kyle's the last one out there with new Tempests for sale.
    Thanks,
