FAD shall release a successor to the Fibass with improved design, detachable cable, improvements in the SQ and sell it below $1500.

There's no need competing with some Layla 2 or KSE1500 at $3000+ with a simple dynamic driver and fancy housing


Ah... Some wishful thinking there...?

Yeah the PF lineup has always been about choosing the owner not the other way around I guess (I haven't have a chance to hear any of the PF lineup yet which is a shame). Tbh though I doubt with that kind of design one can have a good listen at a show given how noisy it is, especially if you need some ambience music to match.
