    Yes it will exhibit similar lower distortion over stroke capabilities as other XBL^2 subs.

    Re: Shiva-X2 12" Any have experience with it?

    I am looking really hard at the Anarchy's, and while I pretty much have nothing to say about the Shiva, I have problems with the company. I have yet to see a phone number, and I have sent 3 emails, beginning 3 weeks ago, with no response. I really want those drivers, but I'm very apprehensive because of the lack of CS. Just a heads up.

    is your company ever going to make any more of your xbl^2 subs?

    If you can manage to get in contact with them, I would have no hesitation with that driver. Beautiful numbers on that one. Their Anarchy mids are hands down the best I have ever listened to. Removed my sub for now and I'm using them without a highpass with effortless response down into the 30's.

No. In the end, the answer is, always has been, and can only be... heat kills speakers. BUT, clipping increases heat generation, sometimes by a drastic amount. So to start a thread simply to state that clipping does not hurt speakers is, again, a half-truth at best.

    Yeah same boat here man. I can't find them used anywhere. But they updated their site as of February, so hopefully all is cool. My only concern is if something happens in shipping or really if anything happens, how exactly do I contact them, ya know? But I REALLY want those drivers, and will probably just end up taking the risk.

    yeah, I was thinking the same thing. Worst case scenario is I file a claim

    You're using the Anarchy's? That's awesome, I haven't been able to find anyone. Where do you have them installed, and what size enclosure? Could you please PM me?

    Sorry to kinda thread jack OP.

    Just have them free-air in the front doors of a Torrent! Fit perfectly without a single modification.

    Guys I think he's had some personal stuff keeping him from working on the products and the site, looks like he setting up shop again. I would be as patient as you can and reap the benefits of XBL^2.

    Yes. The carrier mold for the BM mkIV just got finished. We will get the sample carrier and continue developing the woofer from there. We have five mkIV prototype motors being copper plated to ensure correct finish and measurements, etc.

    Doors are sealed/treated but that's still free-air to the driver.
