I worked for Bose for 5 years, I definitely know it's possible, but most people aren't smart and experienced enough to make it happen. What's your plan going forward? Are you going to sell them?

I am about to drop at least $1k on a sub and amp in the next month. Like many others who replied, I am really interested.

Is your FIL by any chance named Dan?

No- but funny enough my MIL's name is Hollis. (Holly). You don't see that too often.
Won't be on the forum for a couple of weeks...

Ahh, when you mentioned holding patents on shallow mount woofers, it peaked my interest, as I have several friends who are in the industry and specialize in the same sort of stuff.

My name is actually Hollis though, something I have seen even less often than Holly lol .

I like the speaker pod, looks like it would work amazingly well with a modest woofer and two passive radiators

Hello!
The good news: my sub. has been in many months now- no rattles. It's gotten wet several times; no issues. I've had camping gear stacked on top of it- no issues.
The bad news: the second prototype was on the way and we scrapped it. We've had a lot of interest from outside the Jeep world because of the compact size. So we're making some design changes....but don't worry. It will still be Jeep-centric and fit in the same place. We're adding a solid grill that will be in a mud-terrain tire pattern for instance.
Legitimately I don't want to stop anyone from getting their groove on. We'd rather it be right....and we're set back another 3-4 months probably. I very much appreciate everyone's feedback and I am anxious to get this out- but it'll be awhile (again). It's GOT to be done by SEMA so we can show it- that's the goal.

JeepHerz... did Jeep rain on your parade with the 2015 changes to the sub enclosure? Or did they maybe buy the patent from you? I hope it is the latter.
