That is so cool and it took way to long.

Normally I prefer more competition but since I first learned of that company 4 years ago it stank to high heaven and was IMO a blight on the ID audio industry. I certainly haven’t missed the “If you’re interested in those speakers you should consider the AV123 Rockets. They sound great look fantastic and RIGHT NOW they’re on sale!” posts that popped up in every “which of these speakers should I buy” threads over at AVS.

I'm glad I took someone's advice here and bought Axiom subwoofer instead of the AV123 one I was thinking about.

I feel sorry for the employees who had nothing to do with the scandal. I'm sure many of them believed in the company and its products.

This is a monumental day for the audio industry, consumers and most importantly bringing some closure for some of the victims. The market has spoken!

I agree, Peter.

Their leader, however, should be making licence plates for the next few years.

I never did follow all the drama and have no idea what you guys are referring to. What's the abbreviated version of the story? Or is it even worth getting into? If not, forget I asked.

Indeed. I read a thread over on avsforum about someone looking for a replacement driver because his MFW15 bottomed out so easily. I think the designer, Mark Seaton, squeezed as much as he could out of the design given the price constraints, but it was just not a good sub.
