I've seen a couple of posts about rumors of Alumapro dropping the distributorship and now saw this post on Car Audio Central:

Maybe Manny has some insight into what's happening.

Rainbow has left the building...

Quoted from the other forum:

Buy your Rainbow NOW!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Just got off the phone with a good source (who is friends with the owner of Alumapro, the American distributor for Rainbow) and Alumapro is no longer going to be distributing Rainbow products! Rainbow is strictly going to be a European company after this, with no dealers or distributors in the USA. So, call up a local dealer (not me, I'm not a dealer) or Alumapro directly to get these amazing products before they are no longer available.


Not much left to buy from Alumapro after I spent a few grand buying up anything worthwhile...Profis,Profi Vs,Platinums,SLCs...

Me too, but I do understand the law of supply and demand, unfortunately:(

Unfortunately despite the fact that I bought several thousands of dollars from Alumapros remaining stock, there was no discount. Just saved on freight.

Ordering from Germany keeps the same price points, but tacks on shipping, and export fees unless I make minimum orders to cover freight.
