And here's a pair of the infamous "Mummy" speakers that almost became a group buy at one point last year. Someone just wanted to get the empty cabinets. I gotta say, these things are heavier than you'd think and made super strong. I placed a dollar bill on the front to give you an idea of it's size. A 12" pro woofer goes on the bottom and the top is a OS-12 waveguide!

Check out how thick the mounting flange is. You can see the bracing and the rear ports too. I'm not going to unwrap these any more than this. Yes, there were smaller horns inside here too!

Photo of the massive JMLC-200. I'm not going to unwrap these any more either.

Now for the "smaller" stuff.

JMLC-200 in the background. Iwata-300 upper left. JMLC-400 upper right. 10" and 15" SEOS prototypes lower left. Elliptical JMLC-1000 in the middle. Regular JMLC-1000 lower middle. OS-12 lower right. I didn't unwrap the JMLC-350 which is larger than the 400 model you see in the photo. These are sitting on closed cell foam, don't worry!

Now that a lot of the mysteries have been taken out of the shipping costs and everything else, I figured I'd set up another Group Buy if anyone was interested.

Yes.

How do you ship the JMLC-200 to the final destination after your received them?

Those massive horns will be shipped on a pallet. For what they are, it wouldn't be horrible. You can't really get something like that made in the US for the same price, even with pallet shipping.

which shipper do you use? and what Class does the horn fall under? How much do a pair weight? I am estimating shipping cost to San Francisco CA 94122 (from Cincinnati, OH, I assumed)

I'm not sure about the pallet info. The guy that bought the items set it all up. I'm just the helper!

But I did email him and ask how much the pallet cost to go from Cincinnati to California and get the other info. My zip code is 45239 if that helps.

I think I'd just say they're fiberglass parts. If you say audio, they might think electronics and charge more, I don't really know.

jzagaja,

what is the actual weight of a pair of JMLC-200 for 8" woofers?

I found a place that ships using the actual weight instead of dimensional weight and the quote is reasonable using 50lbs for both horns. But I am not sure if my guess of 50lbs for a pair of horns is reasonable or not.

It's going to be over 50lbs for the pair. I can try to weigh one of the ones I have at the shop, but I think they're for a 4".

Many places will ship pallets based on weights to where the JMLC-200 will be at their minimum weight charge. But I'm sure they also have a minimum charge.
