I saw this too. No actual specs yet so it will be interesting to see those and what price point it will be targeted at. If its 1000 Watts that'll be a first for Kriesel, at least to my knowledge. If 1kw I can't imagine it'll be anything but expensive, but you can almost guarantee it'll sound wonderful. Looking at the roll surround it's not going to be targeting sub 20Hz high output. I'm not sure about the red either, some of his speakers have an inverted mid driver with a bright red sticker on them too which I can see causing a probkem for some potential customers.
Some time ago i heard story that the Claridy Amplifiers that was Develop by Ken Kreisel and Claridy itself, they started to be commercialised to other brand of subs other than the DXD12012 and DXD808, this i believe was one of the reasons the previous subs was discontinued.
If this new Subs DXD1000 & DXD500 are the replacement of previous models, they must have a different type of amplifier.
It requires time (years) to improve such good product, and im sure the new generation will sound has good has the previous generation, if not better.
