Final batch

Posted by Frankenspiel Ltd. (Creator)

Hello everyone,

We are pushing towards shipment for the final batch. We need another 2 to 3 weeks until we can return with a timeframe for delivery.

There are over 1,500 units in the final batch and 100’s of add-on variations. Thankfully, we have a brilliant new partner on board in the Netherlands whose team are helping us to speed things along by packaging your rewards. New partnerships will also ensure the success of future Frankenspiel products, post Kickstarter. We promise that your support and patience will not be forgotten when we roll out new products.

While you wait for the next update, we would like to clarify a few things.

Are the FS-Xs USA-friendly?

Yes, we will be shipping your rewards to our warehouse in Salt Lake City. So that means they’ll come out of a USA shipping facility and you won’t have to worry about any additional customs charges.

Measurements

The design of the BMR driver has significant acoustic advantages over conventional piston-only drivers. One of its characteristics however, is that it's not until you are ½ to 1 metre outside that you begin to get near optimum results. We mention this in connection with tests which backers have carried out with measurements at much closer distances.

One of the main advantages of the BMR is that dispersion is very wide in all planes, meaning that its room filling ability is enhanced. You will notice how the FS-X is able to maintain its fantastic, powerful sound, even measured at longer distances.

We look forward to your feedback on the FS-Xs, unique, room-filling sound.

Changing your address (reminder)

BackerKit is still open for those of you who want to change your address.

We will lockdown all rewards in 2 to 3 weeks.

If you are marked as ‘ANSWERED’, you are in the final batch and have one more chance to change your address.

Please contact us as soon as possible if you are marked as 'NOT ANSWERED'.

To view and edit your address on BackerKit please login to your profile here: https://frankenspielfs-x.backerkit.com/

Please note: If you are in a situation where you cannot guarantee a neighbour can accept (or sign for) your rewards please include a contact number in case of an unsuccessful delivery. Our postal partners will then be able to contact you to arrange a redelivery.

Also, if you are one of the lucky ones in the first batch, we would love to hear how you are getting on with your new FS-Xs so please let us know in the comments!

Your next update will be no later than 3 weeks from now, Wednesday 27th April. However, we will update you beforehand if delivery is approaching prior to end of April.

All the best, 

The Frankenspiel Team

      When is the next update on confirmed dates coming please?

      In the next email they'll ask for more money to finalize the product as the cost for replacing the plastic she'll is to high and they already spent all our money.

      I also must say I'm very disappointed. Not only another delay, but you don't even know the timetable. In 2-3 weeks you might know the timetable. This is really bad.

      I was quite interested in getting the speakers in 2014. I could've used them. In 2015 maybe also. It's now 2016 and I kinda don't even care anymore. If you had kept things a bit better informed and actually said upfront how things are going it would've been different. Lots of bad publicity for you guys and nobody will soon care about the actual product.

      It's strange how all those "low to very low" risks seemed to come up one by one. For a product that had been tested a lot and just needed little things.

      Very disappointing. Hope I can sell my speakers to someone, probably won't have any use for them when they finally arrive.

    5. Edward Wilcox on

      Come on... more delays.

      "helping us to speed things along"

      "We promise that your support and patience will not be forgotten when we roll out new products."
      I promise to not forget how you have treated us this time around. I will try to make my enemies invest in your products and make sure my friends gets other products.

      A few updates ago I really thought this endless useless updates with false promise is over and we will receive our speakers finally, but now we have again additional delays -.-

      I have been wondering about my 2nd preordered speaker, Got a similar email about that one. Still looking forward to the delivery.

    12. Jimmy Stiers on

      The last sentence made me laugh, but not in the good way. I also can guess the title of the next update: "preparing shipment".

    13. Peter J on

      "pushing towards shipment for the final batch". That's funny! :)

    14. Lee Gibson on

      Okay. Done and ready to receive. Though don't blame me if I do t hold my breath. Ultimately they had a good idea at the start but after all these years of delay their competitors have taken the lead.

    15. JB on

      @Creator, again, could you please reply to my pm? Thanks.

    16. Martian Cottingham on

      Oh really, this is very poor. In the spirit of openness and goodwill I'd really appreciate some honesty now - this update might as well state 'We've kept you waiting without any real indication why and now we'll keep doing the same'
      The lack of transparency on this project makes me wish I'd not bothered, if the product is anything like the communication it will go straight in the bin

    17. Kevin on

      Really taking the piss now.
