    Hey everyone, I am a newly initiated member. I work for an audio company it is possible a few of you have heard of. I work at Elemental Designs and I am here for some time killing. I am obviously a car and home audio guy. I am here to answer a few questions and hopefully learn some things as well. Just thought I would introduce myself and I look forward to posting with all you fine folks. :bigthumb:

    I actually probably didn't work here when said incident occurred. I have been on the team for about 9 months now. Either way, I am always here to help and will do whatever it takes to make our customers happy.

    They literally stole a design from Tang band and took the prototype to some knockoff buildhouse to reproduce the tooling.

    It was developed right in the public eye starting in 2005 :

    First to sell. First to market:
    http://www.icixsound.com/vb/showthread.php?t=26967

    Silly goose. If it was actually stolen it seems pretty dumb to spend 2+ years doing it. Not trying to start a fight. I don't know you or anything but all you have to look at the dates.

    Sorry guys. I didn't want to start trouble or anything. I just wanted to say hey. I have worked here for a while and really like it but i can't do much about past stuff. I know my job depends on taking care of people and if there was something in the past someone isn't happy about i wish i could change but all i can do my best to make sure something bad doesn't happen in the future.

    sorry again guys. didn't mean to get anyone riled up.

    I had ordered a 13av2, so I could have an all ED system. But then you guys kept on pushing back the release date and I got really tired of having no substage. I love me 6500s, nine2, and nine1. If you guys want to hook me up with a deal on a 13av2 when I have some cash it would be awesome.

    Obviously Ben MeSlime lies to his employees as well. Ben went to tangband and asked them to make a prototype of a thin subwoofer. Tangband agrees and builds it. They send it to Ben and when he approves they tell him he can either a.) Buy the tooling and tangband will build the speaker exclusively for eD b.) If he can buy a certian number every year they will build exlusively for him untill the design no longer satisfies the wants and needs of the consumer. The tooling is still owned by Tangband. Or c.) He can buy it a buildhouse prices but Tangband still has the right to produce the woofer under their own brand.

    Ben doesnt like any of the options and declines. Tangband goes ahead and produces the speaker and next thing they know Ben has a knockoff tooling and is selling them. He then claims Tangband stole the design from HIM (be real, tangband stealing an eDuh product) and he will always beat the price of tangband. Tangband responds with dropping their price $20 below the eDuh price.

    Or shall we go back as far as the broken form the factory scandals. This happened right about when Ben decided he would start assembling his own drivers instead of just straight up rebadeing them. Take a look at Ben's track record. Go WAY back and look at all of thoes 9.1's that got lost on that ship in the pacific and never returned to port.

    I am not attacking you, just letting you and everyone else know what sort of company eD is.
